Question Who's the best, Postfix or qmail?


I've been using MandrakeLinux 9.2 for one month, and I'm evaluating which is the best mail server for a 50-100 LAN network.

I've read tons of articles and documentation about Postfix and qmail, but before chosing one of them, I'd like to hear your opinions about what's the best of those programs

Your thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Postfix: fast, easy to configure and secure. I've a couple of mailservers with a huge amount of traffic (10 GB traffic/day) working fine with Postfix.
