Lab 9.4 authentication failed

Hi. Me again.

In this lab, at step 6, after inputting auth plain AHN0dWRlbnQAc3R1ZGVudA==
I get the following error message on telnet, 535 5.7.8 Error: authentication failed:

/var/log/mail.log just states that SASL plain authentication failed
postfix and dovecot have both been restarted and their statuses are good.

    Sorry for the bandwidth, I've figured it out.

    It was the echo -en "\0student\0student | base64" bit.
    My student's account password isn't student
