QMail is non free, and i.m.h.o. badly comented.
Postfix has IBM Public Licencs, that is as least as free as GPL. (Sutanly
DFSG). Wietse would (probably) like to see a removal of the source code
statment so that the program may have easier to be accepted as standard MTA
for several comersical operationg systems.

There are some benchmarks on Wietse web-site, some has been pobliced on the
maling list. I'm trying to get the time to do a large test of MTA's someday.
(And next time before writing stupid comments on DFSG free look at the current
licence for the packet...)
