I'm not a professional but was able to set-up a Postfix system
with Dovecot IMAP and LMTP. I guess, it depends on what you need;
maybe OpenSMTPD is a solution for you. I got quite interested
into the project. As far as I can judge it's easy to set up for
a simple set-up.

However, I don't have a lot of experience i.e. I've never tried
neither qmail nor the traditional sendmail.
