STARTTLS I can see, but I'm curious why you wanted AUTH at this stage?

Your nexthop inbound mail server shouldn't be asking for AUTH (arguably 
shouldn't even offer it on port 25);  aside from whatever processing 
you're doing in MIMEDefang you should theoretically be able to point 
your public MX records directly to this host.
