Main question: what do you want/need? For a pure satellite hub you can
be quite well of with SSMTP. What is your metric (for "best")?
Flexibility, available addins, security, easy to configure, or what?

For a brief comparison of the most common ones:

Well, that's the MTA side - what about the client part. Do you need POP
or IMAP? Both? LDAP access? What spool design, etc. There are (again)
loads of agents available. Again: what is your metric for "best"?
