No, sendmail is as good or better, especially in a situation such
as you describe.    Some people believe that sendmail can be hard
to configure, and it is a little arcane to do it directly in the
sendmail.cf file.  But there are things that help nowdays.  Anyway,
if you already have it configured and working your are past
that already.   Most of the things these others complain about 
being to complicated are more exotic and special-cased stuff.
Then they become religious zealots about their favorites.
