qmail is regarded as the most secure MTA, why would you migrate to a rather insecure MTA?

My mind isn't maid up. I am however feeling a little bit locked in to the qmail maildir format. (A feeling I don't like

I'm looking at senmail and postfix because they come pre-integrated into Fedora. I need the squirrel mail integration for sure. I also want the spamassasin and mailman, etc. I think postfix would be more secure, but honestly sendmail is okay with me. My other mail servers are MS Exchange
