That a MySQL error. I don't kwon how you made this error apear in your STMP
connection, I can only guess:
Does your STMP server any MySQL authentication?
Are you running MySQL on port 25?

Maybe the right of your mail log and a the result of
"netstat -nlp -A inet"
would help us to find the problem.
