      I have tried it with enabling PLAIN and LOGIN, nothing changed. If I
      remove PLAIN and have only LOGIN, the Outlook client exits immediately,
      stating that the server does not offer a mechanism supported by Outlook
      - so this will not be the problem, either.

      Btw., with IMAP, Outlook sends "AUTH PLAIN" without any problem...

      I don't believe Outlook handles PLAIN, I believe it needs to be LOGIN
      (or NTLM if that's checked in the client), so try modifying your
      dovecot.conf file and add that to the mechanisms parameter.
