Using Exim4 as an SMTP-AUTH client

Simply add the host:username:password to the /etc/exim4/passwd.client file. For example:

pitea:/home/speeves# cat /etc/exim4/passwd.client
# password file used when the local exim is authenticating to a remote
# host as a client.
#
# see passwd_client(5) for more documentation
#
# Example:
### target.mail.server.example:login:password
#
my.smart.host:speeves:mypassword

Make sure that the file has a mode of “640″.
