PostFix, Sendmail - what's better for Maia?


I want to test spamassassin as a frontend spam filter. The web-frontend I plan to use is Maia Mailguard.

But which MTA should I use? Sendmail is the default MTA of my distribution (CentOS4.4). But most tutorials use postfix.

I also found that many people say that sendmail is not secure.

So pls - What should I use?

Sendmail has a long history of past exploits, but that
shouldn't concern you too much these days. Personally
I'd go with postfix because it's (very) quick and the
configuration is far less obscure.
