Thanks for your reply.
Indeed exim supports PIPELINING by default:
# telnet mail.apisoft.pl 25
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 zeus.apisoft.pl ESMTP Exim 4.76 Wed, 16 Nov 2011 14:55:25 +0100
250-zeus.apisoft.pl Hello localhost [127.0.0.1]
250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN CRAM-MD5 DIGEST-MD5
and PIPELINING seems to work fine. But maybe there is a problem with
smtp dialog between dovecot and exim.
