Exim is an MTA.

My setup looks like this:
MUA (The mail client): Mutt
MTA (SMTP Server): Postfix
POP3 Client: postfix
MDA (Local delivery agent): procmail with spamassassin.

The whole setup wasn't all that easy to get working how I wanted it
to, but now that it's all set up, it's nice. I was using mozilla mail
and before that evolution, but now that I have mutt, I won't go back. 

Mutt is really great for dealing with large volumes of mail. My sapm
get filtered via spamass and procmail separates my other mail into
separate boxes for me. I used to spend 2 hours a day on mail, now with
Mutt, it's only 1/2 hour per day.
