as well, far easier than postfix.
eh six of one and half a dozen of the other I suppose. I've used
sendmail, exim, and postfix. I prefer postfix. None of them are
particularly hard for everyday uses. But Postfix's more modern design
make me feel better.

No newness isn't a good reason. Which is why I used the word modern.
Sendmail is a crufty mess oatched up with lots of bandaids (the .mc versus
.cf thing being a prime example.) For historical reasons it had to be that
way but we have learnt things since then.
