I'll post snippets out of my config and you can compare:

,----[ /etc/postfix/main.cf ]
| # Enable authentication
| smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
| # The file that contains the passwords per user
| smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl/sasl_passwd
| # Other options
| smtp_sasl_type = cyrus
| # Is this still neded? Yes
| smtp_sasl_security_options =

,----[ /etc/postfix/sasl/sasl_passwd ]
| [smtp.gmail.com]:587 andreimpopescu@gmail.com:MySecretPassword

You also need to run 'postmap' (as root) on this file.

Are you blocking *outgoing* traffic? (not that it's impossible, but not 
the most common case)

If I read this right you have libsasl2-2 and libsasl2-modules installed 
(status ii), which is ok.

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