You try to use a QMail mailbox in Microsoft Outlook and check the "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" checkbox, but receive the following error when Outlook tries to send a test email:
Send test e-mail message: Your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: 452 wrong response from throttling daemon
If you try to send it directly from the mail server the same error is received:

Mailbox name is longer than 32 symbols - there is a problem with WHOSON package fixed in POA 5.4.4. Internal issue ID is POA-71901.
The issue is fixed in POA 5.4.4 and the following whoson package versions:
# rpm -qa | grep whoson whoson-2.05-1.parallels whoson-server-2.05-1.parallels
If you already have POA 5.4.4 or higher, check that the package versions on WHOSON server match the ones listed above and that whoson service was restarted after the packages were updated. If not, restart it manually:
# killall -9 whosond # /etc/init.d/whoson start
