If you have no compelling reason to switch from sendmail, stick with

My personal favorites in order are
messages in bottles
whatever system dogs use when they smell each others' excrement.
You can't go wrong with the first three: exim, postfix, and sendmail.
There are reasons why I have the preferences that I do, but they don't
apply to you or your needs. So unless you are having problems with
sendmail, just stay with that.

There are many ways to integrate spam-assassin and sendmail, and they
will all be in the ports system. Look at mail/spamass-milter
Another approach (not using milters) is a spamassassin+procmail
solution. I prefer the milter as it allows you to reject mail early
in the process.
