sendmail: too complicated

qmail: personal dislike of djb, problems with such an attitude, qmail sends
every mail on its own, so instead of one rsmtp job so far i'd get 50 single
jobs - just not ok for me, especially with uucp

smail: nice, simply works, uucp/ bangs

exim: nicer than smail, more options, cute... still not able to use bangs and
uucp without having to wade through the docs - no time for that.

These are just my own personal reasons...
