i believe that i already followed what you have written above
but additionally dovecot setting mentioned below.
smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth
what type of packages do i want.
i could not find package postfix-tls
so what i installed is posfix and dovecot-imap
since i am using dovecot SASL i didnt install other packages except
the 2 above and postfix-tls did not found.

does it requires postfix-tls package as i saw in old howtos. i can not
find this package in debian 6. even i try to find debian repo. maybe i
am doing some mistake. would you guide me on this please.
