Having had a look through the docs and read a bit, how well would it be
looked upon to implement a very simple model, call it "simple" for the
sake of a name, so that you could stick this in the config file and be
smtpd_sasl_type = simple
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_path = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_auth_map
and in /etc/postfix/sasl_auth_map:
The only aim for this would be to have a way to get a very simple
mechanism to challenge clients with a username and password and avoid
any external systems, and to rely simply on a flat file for the info.
