If you are happy with sendmail, why change a working thing?

For me, the need to move to Postfix became very apparent once I wanted
to make some [what I thought to be] simple configuration changes
(different transports for different domains, virtual mailboxes, etc.).

I found sendmail's configuration to be daunting.  So I looked
elsewhere.  About ten years ago I started using Postix and I've not
looked back.
