Hi Again,

Although.. Is there any way that exim can accept auth allowing
me to compare the passwords instead of taking in a plain text
password. Why should exim need to know the actual password ?

It would be perfect if we were able to:

successfully authenticate if md5(entered password) = mydbpassword

I've been looking at the exim config but can't seem to find how this
can be done.
