exim with login authentication using pam


I am trying to get exim authenticate users before relaying and would
like to use PAM.

Here is the relevant section within exim.conf

  driver = plaintext
  public_name = LOGIN
  server_prompts = "Username:: : Password::"
  server_condition = ${if pam{$1:${sg{$2}{:}{::}}}{yes}{no}}
  server_set_id = $1

The server_condition was copied directly from a manual page.

However, this doesnt seem to work. The error message that I get in the
logs is

Authentication failed for ( [] (shri): 535
Incorrect authentication data

I have tried this several times with no luck.

Can anyone who has done this before shed some light on this.

Thanks and regards,
