client-side SMTP authentication. Question is, is that really
what you want to do? Why would you disable the relayhost?
smtp_sasl_password_maps only sets the username/password when
Postfix has chosen to route the message to a certain host.
You still need to set relayhost if you want to relay messages
via your ISP.
