    I have RBLs configured in exim.conf, and I also have a few people using SMTP auth (Not pop before SMTP...)

    The thing is, regardless of auth, the RBLs are checked for this connection.

    Ideally I would like no RBL checking of SMTP auth relays...

    Any ideas how/where I can configure this?

    Add the following to your RBL rule:

    !authenticated = *

    So that your full RBL rule might look something like:
    Code:
    # RBL List Begin
      deny message = Rejected: $sender_host_address black listed at $dnslist_domain $dnslist_text
           !hosts = +relay_hosts
           !authenticated = *
          dnslists = dnsbl.sorbs.net : \
                         list.dsbl.org : \
                         cbl.abuseat.org : \
                         bl.spamcop.net : \
                         dnsbl.njabl.org : \
                         sbl.spamhaus.org
    # RBL List End
    
    That will bypass RBL checks for authenticated users.
