I'm a postfix fan because it was easy (as in cake) to set it up to run  
in a chroot jail back when I first started using it, which was when  
sendmail exploit after exploit ad infinitum were being found (a couple  
years ago) - I was running an LFS system at the time, and that was a  

postfix didn't have those vulnerabilities, and I could chroot it as an  
extra measure.

Now I just use the default Fedora rpm and don't run it in a chroot, but  
OTOH I'm also now only using it for mail on a lan and not to talk to  
(or receive from) outside world, so chroot isn't as critical to set up.

I'm not speaking up here though because I know nothing about exim.
