What is your DNS name resolving to? To the IP address of your ethernet
interface? Did you add your local network (e.g. 10.0.0.0/24) to
the "mynetworks" definition in the main.cf?

Could be connected to TLS and security settings. Debugging Outlook is a
pain. Perhaps someone else can jump in here and speak of experience. But
you could start by setting "disable_plaintext_auth = no" in your
dovecot.conf and see if that's a problem.
When you do things right people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
