If only EXTERNAL is available server-wide, then no user can log in with 
a password, you need PLAIN to do that. That flag is for if you want to 
prevent only certain users from logging in with a password. Essentially 
if it's not set it means the user has no password.

You can set this by using the "Add / update a user" form on the Users 
listing page. Enter the name of an existing user to set the password and 
administrator status for that user (yes, this could be clearer...)
