I've got the following error while I try to send a message.

You are not authorized to send mail as <MAIL FROM: <address@hidden>>, 
authentication is require

This is part of my .emacs file:

(require ' smtpmail)
(setq send-mail-function                'smtpmail-send-it)
(setq message-send-mail-function        'smtpmail-send-it)
(setq smtpmail-default-smtp-server      "")
(setq smtpmail-smtp-server "")
(setq smtpmail-debug-info t) ; only to debug problems
(setq smtpmail-auth-credentials '("" 25 "address@hidden" "*****"))

Can you tell me what I had missed?
