Telefonica SMTP Authentication (Spain)

I'm setting our email server in Spain and have a Telefonica ADSL account. The POP3 side is working fine however SMTP requires authentication. I've been sent a username and password and I believe their relay server is smtp.telefonica.net

I have now tried several combinations of username + password but always get back error 535. Some literature I have found suggests username@telefonica.net and other says username$telefonica.net

(I have set up the router directly using IP 192.168.1.1 rather than using the Spanish CD. Could there be some check between the username in the router and the Telefonica smtp that doesn't tally?)
