It is more than suitable. Both postfix and exim are comparable and
powerful MTAs. I personally use Exim but that's because I started with
it. It is very customizable.

For those who begin their adventure with exim, maybe even vexim is
better because you get everything virtualised (virtual users, domains,
etc.) and you define your emails, quotas, etc. via browser.
