Relay permission problem with exim4

Pluggers,

I've got exim4 working wonderfully with dovecot on my Linode, with one 
problem. When authenticating and sending email from my home computer 
(Thunderbird), I keep getting the good ol' "relaying not permitted" 
error, even though I have this line in my /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template:

   accept
     authenticated = *

I don't get it. If I remove this deny line below:

   deny
     message = relay not permitted

Then, all is well, but of course, this would make me an open relay. Any 
ideas how I can fix this?
