Indeed, the question is akin: how to become a sysadmin?

Two options: you can just learn by doing and after 5-6 years you will 
have your solid choice, or you can read what proponents of different 
choices say, and estimate using your best guess how trustworthy what is 
said is , and what you yourself like best. A shortcut for second to 
first is to choose good book on how to run secure mail server, and just 
follow that.

I for one used that last approach some 20 years ago, and architecture of 
postfix (built with security in mind) was one confirmation that I chose 
good source (that was: secure system guide - do not remember the 
title...); and I never regretted. And I learned a lot of fundamental 
approach which I still use in whatever I do now. And I still use postfix 
whenever I need MTA.

Good luck.
