I am using the combination Exim / fetchmail / procmail / mutt / vim here
and am absolutely happy with that.
Previously to using this setup, I ran sendmail (suse at the time) and
I wasn't able to config' it myself; had to use sendmail.cf-generating
tools for that, so I say Exim is easy and nice to configure.
When installing Exim a script gets placed into /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/. That
script sends all pending mails when PPP is up, which is neat.
Also nice is the ability to get statistics on a daily basis. Look at
/etc/cron.daily/exim for that. (You simply need to uncomment a few lines)
