Both are mature MTAs. Do you (or your peers) have expertise with one or the other? Then go with that.

If you can be a lot more descriptive about your goal than "sending mass mail", someone may be able to help further. Otherwise, it's just a guessing game about available resources and the volume you have in mind.

Fair enough, and I see you've marked your thread as solved. I did see (and read) this -- one of the first google results for "comparison of mtas":

http://shearer.org/MTA_Comparison

Thoughtful, subjective analysis, if you're interested.

I think Postfix is a solid MTA, but I have to stick with what I said earlier. If you're already comfortable with Sendmail, I don't understand why you would switch to a new MTA for a (presumably) production project.
