I just struggled through getting exim setup to use gmail as a
smarthost. Since I had a hard time finding the instructions I needed,
I thought I'd add them here to save someone else some time. Simply
adding: : : passwd

to /etc/exim4/passwd.client as the docs say didn't work.

After digging on the internet I found somebody's suggestion to add a
second line: : passwd

to /etc/exim4/passwd.client.

Anyway if you want the step by step:

set as the smarthost by either running
'dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config' or setting
dc_smarthost='' in /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf.

add the lines: : : passwd : passwd
to /etc/exim4/passwd.client

One might beable to just use the server as the
smarthost and follow the directions in the documentation but I didn't
try that.

Hope this helps.
