Remark: This is only for you, if you don't know how to setup ssl/tls on
postfix.

That's not all, you have to enable ssl/tls on postfix (no second instance).

take care, ssl/tls is _not_ needed if you just want to do authentication
but it is RECOMMENDED cause many auth methods (login,plain etc.) are
NOT encrypted and CAN be sniffed (and then abused).

BTW: you can also relay based on certs ;)
