I don't know if others have already chimed in, but I recommend Postfix. I
actually use a combination of Postfix + Courier to handle my mailing needs.
Postfix is by all accounts secure, and is much, much easier to configure
than Sendmail (I'm told by people who pretend to understand Sendmail that
it's much more powerful, but I haven't had any problems with Postfix's
capabilities). Postfix comfortably handles Maildir-style delivery, so it
works fine with Courier-IMAP.

I'm new to email on FreeBSD. Could someone please advise at what MTA i
should use. I thought courier might be a good choice since it has integrated
POP3 and IMAP servers (bearing in mind i have to serve Outlook clients). I
want simple install.

Thank you
