auth_mechanisms = plain

Change it to:

2) Exim Configuration

Add to /etc/exim/exim.conf in “AUTHENTICATION CONFIGURATION”:


dovecot_login:
driver = dovecot
public_name = LOGIN
server_socket = /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb
server_set_id = $auth1

dovecot_plain:
driver = dovecot
public_name = PLAIN
server_socket = /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb
