The two main choices are probably postfix and qmail.

FreeBSD expects new mail to go in /var/mail/$USERNAME. Per se, local delivery
is handled by the LDA (ie, procmail, /usr/libexec/mail.local), not by the MTA.

You can run an MTA in a chroot'ed environment. The MTA needs to be started as
root, or setuid-root in order to bind to port 25, but can then drop privileges
