woah! I'd never expected this outcome.
While for me, Exim was the favourite all along (see my comment on last weeks article http://
lwn.net/Articles/196856/), postfix seems to be the obvious tool to get the recommendation. Mainly
because it's more popular, features a cleaner design (by seperating different tasks to different
processes) and has a better security record (Exim had some vulnerabilities in the old days).
For me and obviously for the reviewer, these points were less important than the obvious
advantages of exim which lie in flexibility, ease of use and raw featureset.
Still... I'm somewhat surprised to see the reviewer agree with me - usually my opinions are not the
popular ones :-)
