I don't know if I'd say more powerful. I have yet to find something
Postfix can't do and it follows the unix-like philosophy to chain
tools together that are good at their own tasks, thus spamassassin,
clamav, etc. When I used exim it seemed overly complex; I achieved the
same setup with much greater ease with Postfix. There's also Sendmail
on FreeBSD (which I think Juan is using), but that's really messy and
not super flexable. I want to try out OpenBSD's OpenSMTPD, but I have
yet to have the time.
