My choice is Postfix. It's still under active development and isn't hampered
by bizarre licensing and enormous egos.
Furthermore, Qmail seems to have earned its reputation for security the
standard DJB way: by implementing only the easy parts of the standard and
complaining loudly about the hard parts ("those are insecure!") until
everyone quits asking for them.

All technical debates aside, Qmail isn't F/OSS software. They couldn't ship
it without getting a custom license.
