SMTP AUTH is quite easy. Edit /etc/exim/exim.conf and scroll down to
the bottom of this file.

There are examples for diffrent authentications Methods, I use for
cram-md5 the following:

  driver = cram_md5
  public_name = CRAM-MD5
  client_name = <myusername>
  client_secret = <mypassword>

Works fine here.

IIRC this configuration files comes world readable, so you might want
to change this.
