Sendmail does a lot, the milter interface allows you to
massage/filter/virus scan email, and reject at the 5xx level.
With sendmail+mimedefang I can do some amazing things, set some address to
send only, filter by any combination of sender,recipient,relay,message
name,size,spam score,extension type, number of relay attempts,etc.
I use postfix on all my server's clients except for my primary and
secondary mail servers.
