You should consider EXIM - ships standard with FreeBSD ports collection.

There is also a Mailing List you could join, should you consider to migrate.

Exim is FAST, very powerful and versatile. Also very suitable to run Virtual
Domains. Integrates seamlessly with vmPOP for Virtual Domain POP Accounts.

As ISP, we are running multiple Exim Servers with no problems at all.
Suitable for Dial-Ups / Leased Circuits.

Nice system_filter (easy to install) to block all those vbs and other

Just my opinion.... :)
