    Trophy Points:
    I am using two exim instance one for SMTP sending emails and one for
    POP/IMAP to receive emails.
    I tried to configure SMTP authentication via creating
    /etc/exim/passwd.client file which contains all my domain users with

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root /etc/exim/passwd.client

    $ cat /etc/exim/passwd.client (manually inserted those users,pass)

    exim.conf related snip:
    never_user = root

    begin authenticators
    driver = plaintext
    public_name = PLAIN
    server_prompts = :
    server_condition = ${if eq{$auth3}\
    server_set_id = $auth2

    driver = plaintext
    public_name = LOGIN
    server_prompts = "Username:: : Password::"
    server_condition = ${if eq{$auth2}\
    server_set_id = $auth1

    Email Client OutLook related snip:

    Account Type >> POP3
    Tools >> Options >> Email Accounts >> >> Incoming Mail
    server >> IMAP/POP3 server IP
    Tools >> Options >> Email Accounts >> >> Outgoing Mail
    server >> SMTP server IP
    Tools >> Options >> Email Accounts >> >> Outgoing Mail
    server >> More Settings >> Outgoing Server

    (SELECTED) My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
    (SELECTED) Logon using username: myuser1 password: secret1

    But as soon as i send email it stuck in outlook outbox never reaches to
    SMTP server. As soon as i uncheck SMTP requires authentication mails
    delievers properly.
    Please let me know how to configure SMTP authentication. I need this
    because to make is secure and no one can abuse SMTP server.

    Exim version 4.6 i am using on CPANEL on CentOS 5.
