Can you verify from the debug output whether your exim tries to
reject, and whether the authentication is successful?

That looks quite valid. Can you please verify with telnet or swaks
whether verizon is willing to accept a bounce from your machine after
you have authenticated? They have some pretty strange e-mail policies,
so I would be willing to believe that they might not allow their
customers to send out bounces.

How do you try sending directly from exim4?

One possible explanation of this question is that you don't have
knowlegde about how SMTP works. Please substantiate the question.
