Sendmail as made available from the debian developers. I've grown up as a
sendmail junkie, and keep the O'Reilly book within arm's reach. I do need
to buy the new one.

Yup. Handles my unmoderated list very well.

Minimal experience at high load, but then again, I used the sendmail bok
to guide me when setting up my mailing list. My list would have to see a
massive amount of email to cause the load to get crazy. It's set up so
that mail to the list is delivered one at a time by a queue runner, not
handled immediately. As such, I'd have to be delivering to all local mail
boxes and have enough mail to last more than 30 minutes to push the load
average above 1! So yes, I do like sendmail.
