Perhaps you should consider if running a mail server is for you.

sendmail is not that bad, it is well documented, it bring usefull log,
it is old and it is a lot of answers to problems in internet.

Indeed I would decide what piece of software to run depending on the
effort of configuring it, but this criterium is less valid for such
a delicate piece like a mail server continously running in a long
period of time.
