My personal preference is qmail. Not sure if it's available in the Debian 
archive or not, but you can check out www.qmail.org for more info - look 
for the links to netqmail.

I also know that many people are happy with Postfix (which is in the 
Debian archive). I have no experience with it.

qmail, by default, will not relay AT ALL, and I have found it very easy to 
install and setup.
