For the unstable version of postfix put this in /etc/postfix/main.cf

smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
smtp_sasl_security_options =
smtp_sasl_type = cyrus

Create the file /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd containing:

[relay.host.com] username@hughes.net:yourpassword

and then run 'postmap sasl_passwd'. Restart postfix and you should be
good to go. You might also need to set up address rewriting if your
mail client is not set up correctly.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
