I guess I would recommend Postfix because it is what I know :-)

I have found that for some of the things I wanted to do, the
documentation for Postfix was better.

When I first started using exim it was pretty bewildering and I bought
the book in the belief that it is useful to know the default Debian MTA.
Is there any likelihood that Postfix becomes the default?

I don't think that it will change.  Like many other things, the default
MTA is a matter of opinion and lots of people like Exim.  Personally,
I'd like to see the default change, but I don't think it makes that much
of a difference in the long run as you can always change it.

No doubt this is due to my [...] but I still have to find how you use exim4 for routing system messages *and* for sending mail to an internet address. And I found the documentation that comes with it inadequate [for me].
