Please don't top post. If you don't know what that means, Google for it.

If the OP has 'dovecot' all ready installed, that might be a viable
option. Otherwise, he would be better off to simply configure SASL2

I would strongly recommend that the OP reads the Postfix documentation
on SASL as well as visiting:
<> and
downloading and running the 'saslfinger' utility. He can then post the
output preferably the Postfix forum, or else here.
