I'm glad it's working for you.  SSL auth to smarthost in Postfix is 
certainly possible, but not exactly simple:



>>> I switched to port 587 and all worked. Thanks for the lead. When I seen
>>> that you specified a port, I tried 465 and that didn't work. So I tried
>>> 587 and viola mail sent and returned.
>> FYI:
>> Port 587 is used usually as an alternate to port 25 for sending mail
>> when port 25 might be blocked.
>> Port 465 is the standard port for SMTPS (SMTP over SSL).  If you had a
>> working SSL connection for your SMTP, your test of port 465 might have
>> worked, too.
