Yes. That works fine. E.g. on my laptop I'm running postfix + cyrus SASLv2 to
relay outgoing mail to my ISP's mail server.
IMHO, postfix is easier to configure then sendmail. I'm using a
“virtual_alias_maps” to link my outgoing e-mail addres to my local user-id
If postfix is compiled with Cyrus SASLv2 support, activating it is quite easy. From my
relayhost = [smtp.yourISP.here]:submission
smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/sasl_passwds
smtp_sasl_mechanism_filter = plain, login
smtp_tls_security_level = may
Additionally I'm using procmail as a local delivery agent. This in turn runs
bogofilter to flag spam. It then delivers mail to separate mailboxes.
