The configuration dialog does state that if you need to use multiple 
smart-hosts or they require authentication you'll need to edit the config 
files by hand.
You'd need to understand Perl compatible regular expressions and add a lot 
more complexity to the automated config to achieve this and it isn't 
something they could easily error check.
I find it easier to use split config rather than use a monolithic config 

all you'll need is a couple of routers and 2 transports to achieve what you 
want; information is in spec.txt and the exim faq is extremely useful 
especially the cookbook examples.
Many people also use postfix for this sort of stuff;
I personally only have to deliver to one smarthost so it's not something 
i'll look into further.
Regards, Kerry.
