I don't know if you've found what you're looking for yet, but in case you haven't, here's the lowdown:
It's alluded to, but not specifically stated: you'll need to add a "relayhost=....." line to your main.cf.  Also, don't forget to run postmap after creating the sasl_passwd file.
BTW, SASL is not the same as SSL.  You need to enable SASL to authenticate with your ISP's SMTP server.
Hope this helps!
