I won't pretend to own a clue, myself. Maybe you should try the
O'Reilly book, _Exim_, "Official Guide For Release 3", by Philip Hazel
(talk about straight from the horse's mouth). Chapter 15,
*Authentication, Encryption, and Other SMTP Processing* would seem to be
the answer to your problem.
The author cites common cases, among them;
"An employee with a laptop is away from base, and wants to be able to
connect from arbitrary locations and send outgoing mail via the server
back at home. Even without a laptop, someone might want to do this from
a cybercafe, or other 'foreign' client.
"An employee has a dial-up ISP account at home that uses a different
IP address each time a new connection is made, so host_accept_relay
cannot be used."
If what you're doing doesn't work, stop doing it.
