Hi Daniel,
attached is the whole debug output and I think the following is
important information:

(20:09:25) jabber: Sending (ssl) (user at <response
(20:09:25) jabber: Recv (ssl)(77): <failure
(20:09:25) sasl: DIGEST-MD5 client mech dispose
(20:09:25) sasl: DIGEST-MD5 common mech dispose
(20:09:25) sasl: Mechs found: SCRAM-SHA-1  PLAIN
(20:09:25) sasl: No worthy mechs found
(20:09:25) connection: Connection error on 0x21ade3b0 (reason: 2
description: Nicht autorisiert)

As I said, I verified several times to use the correct password. I'm not
sure what "mechs" mean. Is this a helpful indication?
