    As Noel said, you mix smtp_ and smtpd_ parameters:

    smtp_* paremeters are used when postfix sends mail to a remote system.
    smtpd_* parameters (with a 'd' in smtpD) are used when postfix receives

    It seems you want the latter, so remove the smtp_sasl_* parameters and
    use these instead:

    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
    smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
    smtpd_sasl_authenticated_header = yes
    smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
    smtpd_sasl_path = private/dovecot-auth

    check the SASL README (server side part, not client side) for more

    once you are confrtable, setup TLS and enforce it for mail submission,
    so that passwords are not sent in the clear.

    PS. dovecot only implements "server side sasl". it cannot be used with
    smtp_sasl_* settings.
