Note that TLS != SASL.
Encryption and authentication typically have nothing to do with one another.
It's also not 100% clear from your description whether you want to route
based on sender or recipient domain.

You can solve both issues by creating multiple smtp clients with
distinct added -o smtp_tls_* and -o smtp_sasl_* settings, and routing
those domains to them with transport_maps, e.g.:


smtp_google1 unix - - - - smtp
  -o smtp_tls|sasl_*_set1 for account #1

smtp_google2 unix - - - - smtp
  -o smtp_tls|sasl_*_set2 for account #2

and in transport(5): smtp_google1: smtp_google2:

man 8 smtp, man 5 transport.

However, I am assuming you want to route by recipient domain.
For sender domain routing, do what Wietse wrote.
