[Nmh-workers] Trouble getting send/post working with ISP smtp

What i am trying to do:

Using nmh (1.1-RC1) as a mail agent on a standalone 
linux PC with emacs and the mh-e as front-end.
Mail is delivered and send via an external POP3 and SMTP server hosted
by my ISP

I followed all the guidelines I found in the man pages and the
corresponding articles
in the comp.mail.mh group that had a similar issue and provided the
login information in
the .mh_profile, mts.conf and .netrc files.

My .mh_profile:

Path: Mail
draft-folder: drafts
unseen-sequence: unseen
inc: -host pop.isp.somewhere.net -user address@hidden
send: -verbose -server mail.isp.somewhere.net -user address@hidden -sasl
post: -verbose -user address@hidden -sasl
Editor: emacs

My mts.conffile:

mts: smtp
hostable: /etc/nmh/hosts
localname: pop.isp.somewhere.net
masquerade: draft_from
mmdfldir: /var/mail
pophost: pop.isp.somewhere.net
servers: mail.isp.somewhere.net

My .netrc file:

machine mail.isp.somewhere.net login address@hidden password mypassword
machine pop.isp.somewhere.net login address@hidden password mypassword

After that set up POP3 works just fine but SMTP gives me the following

post: problem initializing server; [RPLY] 551 {mp003} Need to
authenticate via

To me that looks like that post is not using the provided login
information in .netrc.
but inc works smoothly with that information. Some kind of strange

Is anybody able to help me with the missing information?
It seems that only a bit of information is missing to get it working.

Regards in advance
