OK - as this seem to be quite difficutl for many - here my configuration
of postfix - TLS and SASL parts only:

## TLS
#  Transport Layer Security
#
smtpd_use_tls = yes
smtpd_tls_auth_only = yes
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/postfix/stargate.solsys.org.key
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/postfix/stargate.solsys.org.crt
smtpd_tls_CAfile = /etc/ssl/postfix/stargate.solsys.org.pem
smtpd_tls_loglevel = 3
smtpd_tls_received_header = yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_timeout = 3600s
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom

# SASL SUPPORT FOR CLIENTS
#
# The following options set parameters needed by Postfix to enable
# Cyrus-SASL support for authentication of mail clients.
#
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtpd_data_restrictions = reject_unauth_pipelining
smtpd_sasl_local_domain =


This setup works here for 2 Years ...
Cheers

Joerg
