smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
smtpd_sasl_authenticated_header = yes
#only localhost can relay via us without authentication
mynetworks = 127.0.0.1
#allow relay for authenticated users:
#allow relay for IPs in mynetworks
# deny relay otherwise
then reload postfix and try
telnet localhost 25
after the EHLO command, you should see two lines tarting with 220-AUTH
note 1: comment out the submission service in master.cf and configure
your mail clients to use port 587 (the standard submission port). this
way you separate "submitted" mail traffic from the rest.
note 2: the next step for configure TLS and only allow authentication
for TLS protected sessions:
smtpd_tls_auth_only = yes

you can paste the output of
one pastebin or the like and send the URL. (note the '-n' in the
command: this will show locally modified parameters only).
