I was attempting to setup smarthost smtp.gmail.com::587 for my friend
Kathy who runs Kubuntu Edgy, aka exim4 4.62-2, and had authentication
problems.  After a lot of trial and error, and searches I found
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=403583 solved the

Change the hosts_try_auth clause of

  hosts_try_auth = ${if exists{CONFDIR/passwd.client} \
        { ${lookup{$host}nwildlsearch{CONFDIR/passwd.client}{$host_address}} }\
        {} \

I updated the troubleshooting section of
http://wiki.debian.org/GmailAndExim4 to include the above information.
