I switched from traditional SMTP port 25 to the "new" standard 
submission port (587). Looks like there were two problems with that:

1. "Sender address rejected: need fully-qualified address" and after I 
fixed that

2. "Recipient address rejected: You must be authenticated to use this 

Strangely, the "Test connection" button reported "OK" in both cases 
(which completely misled me). That's why I think, a "send test email" 
button would really be better than a "test connection" button.
