FWIW, I was the original poster and I was only referring to the technique
of "grab mail before authentication" - we use imap(s) as well.  As myself
and others have said, 'exact' works well for this.  I'm going to look into
smtp auth next, I need to find exim docs that talk about setting it up, but
'exact' is very simple and works easily enough...

My original post was meant to find out what the modern way of doing this is
- "esmtp" or "smtp auth" seems to be the answer.
