Default Postfix require login

I'm trying to configure Postfix so that not everyone but myself can use it.

I followed this tutorial: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/postfix...-mail-servers/

But Thunderbird tells me the server SMTP doesn't allow authenticate request.

I want to be able to send anonymous requests from localhost only and SSL logged ind requests when outside.

The tutorial is for setting up an smtp client what you want to do is setup the smtp server for authentication. Look at the howtos here on howtoforge or the postfix documentation http://www.postfix.org/SASL_README.html

But doesn't work when I try to telnet, even without firewall enabled.
