Postfix is getting more popular every day. At first is was just an
application to provide an alternative for Sendmail. But now these days
Postfix is being used more often. I have no experience with qmail, but
my experience with postfix is really good. I can't judge which one is
better or not but I'd go with Postfix all the way.
And Ubuntu uses Postfix as well, while Debian uses Exim. (Correct me if
I'm wrong). And on my work (large enterprise) we use Postfix as well for
mail in, mail out and relaying. Works really great.
I hope my information is of some use for you.
