If there's a solution there (at for what I wanted to do with an MTA, it was far from obvious. The solution was relatively easy to find in the Exim documentation, so I went with Exim. IMHO the Exim documentation is significantly easier to use.

As someone who had never set up a proper MTA before, I was quite happy to set up Exim for my work, based on the available documentation, whereas I would not have been happy to do the same with postfix.

I can always find what I need in the Exim Specification or the FAQ, whereas I couldn't easily find what I needed in the postfix docs.
