I probably wouldn't use it on a server but it works for my personal use.

communigate pro missing

CommuniGate Pro is a commercial app but much better than any qmail/postfix/sendmail or any other oss mta

Yeah you're right.... is this usually not that heated of a category?

Do people prefer to use bloated MUAs rather than an MTA and a light MUA working together?

Got tired of sendmail bugs and exploits (and its configuration.) Switched to Postfix and never looked back. Never tried qmail, probably need to.

qmail is fast and reliable, pity about how hard to setup and configure it is!
exim also rocks, but if its a tossup i go for qmail.

Exim. Under heavy loads qmail tends to choke. Of course, there are apps like qmHandle to help it out when it has problems, but still...
