so what did you do to configure SASL?

you missed the welcome message stating at least "postconf -n" for problem
reports because you provided zero informatuin

since you mention dbmail i would in general suggest using dovecot as proxy
which also can be used for SASL and that way provides the same auth-mechs
for POP3/IMAP/SMTP with the same user-database

look at the dbmail-list-archives, there are tons of informations
with full working example configurations, since i worte them
multiple times there i am tired to search and reapeat it

basic configurations postfix/dovceot SASL

smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth

# configure backend for postfix sasl-auth
service auth {
  unix_listener /var/spool/postfix/private/auth {
  mode = 0660
  user = postfix
  group = postfix
