If you're not familiar with configuring & running email servers, they'll
both be complex to install & configure.
I would recommend Exim, as one of the most straightforward configuration
systems out there, doesn't need 10000  conflicting third party patches
to fix bugs or add functionality, and has a hell of a lot of excellent
OTOH, most people on this list use qmail, so you're more likely to be able
to find lots of people willing to help when you inevitably run into
 OK, it's more like 3 or 4, but you get the idea
 As you can tell, I'm not impressed with people's insistence on using
imperfect solutions like sendmail, qmail, or postfix when The Perfect SMTP
Agent is already available :)
 You might have guessed that I'm just slightly opinionated when it
comes to these things :)
