Monit supports plain authentication with the SMTP server ... it seems that your SMTP server doesn't support it. You can get the list of the authentication types on your SMTP server this way:

$ telnet <your mail server> 25
EHLO <hostname>

... the server will respond with something like this: ESMTP

You can try to use some other SMTP server (for example Gmail SMTP servers support the plain authentication).

Dear all!
Now I'm building one monitor system for our linux server with munin, munin-node and monit. With monit, I wanna configure it to sent mail alert whenever one problem occured but till now I got stuck in this configuration. Let me explain more detail about my case:
We got one exchange server for acting mail server roles.
Now I wanna configure monit use one user account of exchange server for sent mail.
I've done this configuration
address@hidden ~]# vim /etc/monit.d/apache
set mailserver port 25 username "address@hidden" password "address@hidden"
set alert address@hidden
set mail-format {
        from: address@hidden

        message: Something's wrong with your server at physical network
                                Your faithful employee,

if failed icmp type echo with timeout 15 second  then alert
