We use SME as our mail server.  It works very well for us.

I used to use SME as our filter as well but have replaced it with 
IPCop.  I find IPCop a much better firewall/filter/gateway than SME. 
DansGuardian is much easier to install and manage on IPCop. 

Obviously, I have one box with IPCop for my filter and a different box 
with SME as my email server.  (The SME box is also our Web server and 
provides some other functions for our network (MySQL, etc.)  SME is a 
very good general server.  IPCop is a good gateway/filter.
