mail handling aka mta package preference for the desktop user

How/Who is collecting ideas for default packages for debian desktop?

For Debian Desktop I recommend postfix for the MTA default package.
Last time I installed sid, exim was installed. I did not answer the prompts correct, and that part of my system was hosed. Sendmail has a friendlier set of prompts, but both of these packages have slowed down system startup when not configured optimally. Postfix is the simplest of these packages and has the easiest to understand questions.

Let us know if you know of a better MTA package for the desktop or perhaps we don't need it at all?

Thanks, Daniel
