I am trying to configure exim with gmail in my debian 6 system as per this tutorial http://www.manu-j.com/blog/wordpress-exim4-ubuntu-gmail-smtp/75/.After configuring,

When i run update-exim4.conf i am getting this message,

Exim configuration error:
  two client authenticators (gmail_login and login) have the same public name (LOGIN)
Invalid new configfile /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated.tmp, not installing 
/var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated.tmp to /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated

Any pointers to solve this?

Don't know if you already solved this one but I just used the guide you're linking and got it to work.

The error you're getting is because you didn't remove the default login section from your /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template.

Look for a line with the following: public_name = LOGIN, some lines above that you'll find a section named login: you should erase that whole section and try again.
