Question mail server question

I want to setup a mail server on my Linux box. Any suggestions as to which package to use. I've heard sendmail is on the way out. What about qmail or Lotus Notes?

sendmail is nice... but it's just a MTA.
But u need a pop3 as well to retrieve mail.

Postfix seems very solid. I find it a good replacement for sendmail.
