Hi Lenny,

>From the error message, I suspect the mail server in question being
gmail. As far as I understand the gmail support pages, Google wants
you to authenticate using SMTP authentication. This is a
username/password authentication and is unrelated to the encryption
stuff. The fact, the 530 message finds its way back to the mail client
proofs the tunnel is up and working correctly.

What is needed now is to configure your mail client to send the
username/password pair to the mail server. I don't know calypso at
all, but I'd look for something like 'use name and password' in the
'outgoing server' dialog (if there is something like that).
