      I would personally recommend using dovecot for SASL, especially if you
      don't need client SASL (from postfix to remote servers); dovecot is way,
      way easier to set up, and evolves quite nicely.

      It's also ridiculously easy to set up from scratch:

      Submission should disable all of the above (in master.cf) except
      You can prefix that with any reject_ restrictions you wish to impose on
      your users, such as a proper sender- and/or recipient domain.
      The clue is that there should be no permit_ rules before /or/ after
      permit_sasl_authenticated, and the last rule should be an explicit "reject".
