Depends on what you're after in terms of documentation, of course - I
always found it quite nice when I used Exim.  It's also worth looking at
the FAQ which is more oriented towards "I'd like to..." when you don't
know the sort of Exim feature you'd use.  It fulfils a lot of the roles
of a tutorial-type section in the manual.

It's not that bad - from my memories of both Exim and qmail I think that
qmail has some much more aggressive defaults than Exim.  I could be
wrong on that, but it's certainly possible to push a good load through
