[Twisted-Python] SMTP authentication

Sorry to be unhelpful in describing the issue. The password and username
credentials are all correct. I am using BuildBot MailNotifier to send an
email each time a build has taken place:

                 from buildbot.status import mail


                 fromaddr="build at companyname.co.uk",
                 extraRecipients=[example at companyname.com",],



I am a new user to twisted and am unsure of what it would be helpful to
show. The traceback I have shown is from the twistd.log. If I can't expect
it to work with some other authentication method then how can the problem
be resolved?
