Using Postfix and Cyrus-IMAP here, both on small Soekris-based
SOHO-Routers with a few users (5 to 20 per office), as well as
on a few big corporate networks with approx. 6000+ users each,
and many virtual domains.
Postfix has proved both dead-easy to configure and able to
withstand many waves of serious DDoS attacks by rate-limiting
itself. Its anti-spam features, if used right, are also quite
effective. I've used sendmail extensively in the past, and that
was not bad either, though a little tough to configure for edge
