ok i will try the above that you shared but the howto that i am
following is a bit different from yours. let me try yours.
the config that i got from here
home_mailbox = Maildir/
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtpd_sasl_local_domain = $myhostname
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
smtpd_sender_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated,
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks,

actually, i have two new email accounts that i locally created for
testing (mail1 and mail2)
however i can not manage to make my outlook talk to smtp of my server.
i can see the IMAP inbox which was successfull. but i use netcat for
sending email from console.
i did this.
mail from: email@example.com
(actually i wanted to send email from mail1 to itself)
all the message
i end email with "."
and quit the netcat app.
however when i send receive from outlook from my client computer i did
not see any email in it.
and thats all so far i reached now.
but ill get back to you when i try your configuration today.......
