Sendmail? It's the best MTA for me ;-)

Maybe your question could be answered in a more helpful way,
if you stated

- which MTA you are currently using
- what you don't like about it, so you want to switch

We are an ISP and we run Sendmail. Works great. I don't like
qmail, because for me it's architecture is even more arcane
than Sendmail's. And it doesn't log all information Sendmail
does - which is important for us when tracing "lost" mails.
(remote MTA queue ID, for example)

I hear lots of good things about postfix, but switch for
the sake of switching? I already have enough work ;-)
