It depends what you want to do?

Typically, you'd use SASL for external users to authenticate with postfix, and depending on who the users are, you can use a self generated certificate or buy one. Which to do will depend on your specific requirements. What sort of company are you, who's authenticating, where are they authenticating from? etc etc

Hello,
Thanks for reply, I will install mail server for GSM operator "big company" so he will pay to buy certificate.
Users "employees" will authenticate from mail client like outlook and from webmail like horde.

Thanks
