I don't know if this helps though it solved my authenicate problem.  I
take no credit as I learned it from an earlier posting by Sridar M. A.

"The passwd_client seems to be Debian specific but it did not work.  I edited /etc/exim4/conf.d/30_exim4-config_examples to include  the login id and password.  Just including below the relevant section: 

  driver = plaintext 
  public_name = PLAIN 
  client_send = ^user@mylog.org^secret 
#.ifndef . . . 

I tried this at the time without success not realizing that his choice of file to edit was appropriate when using a split configuration. After floudering around wildly and asking a lot of dumb questions it finally dawned on me that I was not using a split configuration.  Accordingly I went to /etc/exim4, ran grep -n plain: exim4.conf.template, used vi to edit at the line number adding a line client_send = ^our_user_name@verizon.net^our_password and commenting out all the lines of the if statement, and then ran update-exim4.conf.  After this mail from Mutt was sent with no problem.
