the problem was:
the auth = mailfrom .... line was in the global config, and that needed to be 
in the directory for the list.
I commented the auth line out of the 'global config' 
/usr/local/etc/minimalist.conf and added it to the file 'config' under the 
'farm' directory.

yay it works now.
thanks rob for pointing me at minimalist.
