SMTP Error <<: 503 AUTH command used when not advertised

I have installed Exim4 however I face the tilted error in webmail lite.

Here is a snippet of my code info:
  driver                     = plaintext
  server_set_id              = $auth2
  server_prompts             = :
  server_advertise_condition = ${if eq{$tls_cipher}{}{}{*}}
  server_condition           = ${if crypteq{$auth3}{${extract{1}{:}{${lookup{$auth2}lsearch{/etc/$domain/passwd}{$value}{*:*}}}}}{1}{0}}
#  server_advertise_condition = ${if def:tls_cipher }
What am I missing ? How do I enable AUTH ?

Thanks in advance.

I believe your code may be initiating a standard SMTP connection instead of an extended SMTP connection (HELO vs EHLO), auth is not available in standard SMTP.

Thanks in advance.
