Exim has fairly good record. There's not really a lot of difference
between it and postfix from this POV. In fact even sendmail hasn't been
so bad recently as it used to be, but postfix and exim are probably
still ahead. It was Postfix which had the most recent erratum for the
open relay thing, wasn't it?

It's ease of use and documentation which tips the balance, I think.
