    You installation doesn't look right.. your config directory should be /Library/Server/Mail/Config/postfix

     

    What happens when you run

         sudo ps -aux | grep master

     

    You should see:

         master -c /Library/Server/Mail/Config/postfix

    If postfix isn't starting up, then you won't be able to use SMTP in your mail app.

     

    What do you get with

         sudo postfix status

    If you get no results, then postfix isn't listening on port 25

     

    Considering you see that postfix fatal error, I doubt its running.

     

    What do you get with

    sudo postfix -c /Library/Server/Mail/Config/postfix check

    Well.. your postfix is up and reachable from the outside world

     

    $ telnet merlin.macwebservers.com 25

    Trying 67.212.81.243...

    Connected to merlin.macwebservers.com.

    Escape character is '^]'.

    220-merlin.macwebservers.com ESMTP Postfix

     

     

    So thats good news..

     

    As far as what to enter in your mail client.

    Enter the same hostnamename, user and pw you enter for imap.

    Those other permissions errors are warnings, they should cause it not to startup.

     

    So.. do you still see the throttling error?

     

    If not, then you should be operational.

    use the same hostname, user/password you have entered for imap...

     

    select cram-md5 for authentication.

     

    If that doesn't work, you'll need to provide your settings if you want an opinion. Send both imap and smtp settings.
