I love qmail also.. but didn't do well under heavy smtp load in my 
environment. I put qmail +vpopmail + qmailadmin 
+clamav+dovecot+spamassasin + assap +squirrelmail together. Exim is 
great if you can get past the asinine language of the config file. 
Postfix is also ok but never found a good virtual mail interface for it.
