I am trying to get a new Alfresco working with mail since without mail it doesn't invite anybody to anything.  This should be pretty simple.  I have alfresco-global.properties set as follows
#
# Outbound Email Configuration
#————-
mail.host=outgoing.verizon.net
#mail.port=25
mail.username=<username>
mail.password=<password>
#mail.encoding=UTF-8
#mail.from.default=alfresco@alfresco.org
mail.smtp.auth=true
This this is the same SMTP server I am talking to for ssmtp on this Ubuntu box.

Notification fails and the log file contains:

It looks like an authentication problem but I have authentication set to true and the credentials are correct.  This should work.  Any ideas what to try?
