    The quoted log detail is normal to see when the e-mail client software is not configured to use SMTP Authentication. It will be necessary to ensure that the e-mail client software application is configured to use SMTP Authentication; this is where the e-mail client software is configured to use the e-mail account username and password to log-in (authenticate) as a legitimate or valid e-mail account that exists on the server.

    How to do check the SMTP Authentication setting depends on what e-mail client software application is being used to attempt sending e-mail via SMTP. Using your preferred Internet search engine I recommend to include the phrase "SMTP Authentication" in addition to including the software application name and version in the search criteria; this will help pinpoint further resources that detail how to configure the applicable e-mail software.
