You misunderstand (or I didn't bother to explain clearly) - I wasn't
answering the OP with a suggestion of how to go about his problem, I was
answering someone else's question about how SMTP AUTH was possible if
you don't send a password, but do for POP.  The OP needs to send
authentication from the client-side authenticators at the end of
exim.conf, presumably.
