Qmail. Even though it has some problems too, as every piece of software
does, they are in no way of the same magnitude as sendmail's history of
remote root exploits, complexity and general ugliness. 

Qmail lacks some modern features, but I rather have a mail server that
lacks features than one that lacks security.

Also, qmail's modular architecture accomodates creating create custom
features very well.

I've been deploying and managing qmail based mail servers for a number
of years now, and am very happy with it.
