Re: SMTP server

Hope no one minds if I hijack this thread.  =)

I just read through all the responses and was surprised to see three people using postfix, one using exim4, and none using sendmail.

I've heard so much about sendmail that I thought it was the de facto standard. I considered exim4 "that other MTA", and I have never even heard of postfix until now.

Could someone please briefly tell me the differences between the three in a nutshell? And maybe recommend one for a newbie to setup just as an experiment / learning experience? (From this thread, it sounds like postfix would be the choice in that regard, but can't hurt to ask)
