Ok, here a run with swaks from the client to the server:
./swaks --auth CRAM-MD5 --server our.mail.server.com --auth-user username --auth-password password
To: preining@gmail.com
=== Trying our.mail.server.com:25...
=== Connected to our.mail.server.com.
<-  220 our.mail.server.com ESMTP Exim 3.35 #1 Wed, 13 Jul 2005

 -> EHLO gandalf.localdomain
<-  250-our.mail.server.com Hello norbert at
host196-222.pool8175.interbusiness.it []

<-  250-AUTH CRAM-MD5
<-  250 HELP

<** 535 Incorrect authentication data
*** No authentication type succeeded

<-  221 our.mail.server.com closing connection
=== Connection closed by foreign host.

Which does not give me more information.

Best wishes
