Thunderbird looks like it was trying to talk but didn't like something the server said back to it.
 
I used Thunderbird with qmail and a PostgreSQL backend all the time.  I have many customers that do as well.  So we know it should work.
 
I wonder if it's some sort of LOGIN versus PLAIN versus CRAM-MD5 issue?
 
How about capturing to a file.     tcpdump -w smtp.cap
 
Email that to me off-list and I'll check it out.

I did a tcpdump while sending the last message with Outlook and the file is much larger than the try with Thunderbird.

I just tried a tcpdump.
I did tcpdump > tcp and then a grep 'smtp' > smtp.
 
Here are the contents of the smtp file.  Not exactly sure what all of that means.

backend shouldn't matter.  How about doing a packet capture (tcpdump) and seeing if Thunderbird is actually trying?  Sometimes things can happen so fast it may seem like it's not trying.
 
Also, how about TLS.  Doesn't Thunderbird try TLS by default?  How about turning that off?

Well, oddly enough the problem with sending email seems to be Thunderbird itself.  I can send email from Outlook Express just fine when I use the lebanon-tn.com account with it.  However, Thunderbird has a knee-jerk reaction of not being able to connect to the smtp server.  It seems as though it fails before it even tries.  Funny thing is that it does not do this when Mysql is the backend instead of postgres.

Hey, this is Joshua Coucke (on my work account)
 
I have been able to get the email server working on postgres like I said.  However, I can not send messages.  I get an error message telling me that Thunderbird can not connect to the SMTP server.
 
When I check in the vlog table it has this error "vchkpw-pop3: vpopmail user not found [EMAIL PROTECTED]:x.x.x.x"
 
Now the user is in the database, I can see it using phppgadmin and the vuserinfo command.  So why is vchkpw-pop3 not finding the user?
 
Thanks,
Joshua Coucke
