IMO, exim and postfix are comparable and there's no huge difference
which favours one of them. I use exim in all my installations, they are
usually small to medium size, but even with big ones, I would consider
exim as a good MTA.

A large ISP in europe whom I used to work for uses Exim to relay mail for over 2 million customers.

Its a fast MTA, usable in large to huge installations.

I would consider Exim to be an excellent MTA.

This nicest thing about Exim is that you don't have to frig around with the binary to get it to do nice things like LDAP. It just works out of the box, and scales up to millions of users without fuss. Just learn how to use the exim configuration file :) Unlike, say, qmail where you have to patch the source. (Not that qmail isn't good - it is excellent.)


Projecting what I want is always hard to know
But when it comes between my sights I'll let the damage show
I'd like to meet a space man, who's got it going on
Sailing through the stars at night 'til our world is gone
