Can exim ratelimit apply only for non authenticated users?

We are figuring out how to tweak the new ratelimit feature to limit non authenticated users, because don't want to block any of our clients, but ratelimit all spammers trying to send their junk.

Also would like to know if the tweak setting option "The maximum each domain can send out per hour (0 is unlimited)" is overruled with the new ratelimit feature? (imagine yes ..... this ratelimit is per connection, the other is per domain, so don't want to limit our clients)

If anyone is using this new feature to limit incoming messages, please, give us some clues .... and any feedback about this ..... because after reading exim documentation are not sure if we understand how to configure this feature. We are planning not to receive more than 5 mails per min for any remote address, except for the authenticated as we said before and a ratelimit_whitelist for exemptions.

Not sure if this is a good idea, but wanted to try

Thanks in advance for any help
