There's nothing particularly wrong with Exim; it works just fine. It's

that Postfix was marginally better in some way.

What about dma?

Well, dma does not listen on port 25 for incoming connections, it accepts mails from local MUAs and delivers them to either the local mailboxes or remote (full-fledged) SMTP servers. I'm sure there would be people claiming that such a
feature reduction, read simplification, would be a decent default.
