Hi.
Today i had "fix stuff" day :D
So i went around on my system looking for stuff to fix that it should have been fixed a long time ago ...
and then came to the point of fixing smtpd that wasnt working and allways replied "relay access denied"

This website :http://postfix.state-of-mind.de/patrick.koetter/smtpauth/

has some nice documentation about postfix and the answer to my problem.
actually was pretty easy.
just make sure you have this lines in /etc/postfix/main.cf

Code:

smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtpd_sasl_local_domain = $myhostname
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes

smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated, permit_mynetworks,  check_relay_domains


restart postfix and ask someone to use your smtpd .

in my case , it started to work right away.
If this post is a dupe, let me know because i couldnt find anything about it.
so i can delete this post.
thx
