Re: Community opinion for new MTA

I've been a long time user of qmail, but I'm looking for opinions on other MTA's. Currently I admin two qmail servers and I have a need to migrate one of those to a newer machine. I could stay with qmail, being that I'm extremely familiar with it, but the fact that it hasn't been updated in years (and doesn't look like it ever will be), I'm open to moving to more current MTA's. The sever would have to support the most common things, like multiple domains (ability to route based on domain and such), the ability to relay and/or run scripts configurable down to the user domain level, being able to handle a mailing list of 250k subscribers (as long as we can inject to the send), the ability to set different header elements like 'reply to' and 'bounce' addresses, etc. Time is kind of short for me, so if I'm to go with anything other than qmail, it can't have a steep learning curve for getting the basics up and running. Thanks for your opinions in advance.

For sheer configurability and ease of use I'd suggest exim. The configuration file actually makes sense to me (-:
