Just to throw my hat in here - we use OS X's Postfix/Cyrus mail server 
(or have for the past 3 years), and while it runs relatively smoothly, 
it's lack of configuration power can sometimes tie our hands and give us 
a grand headache. I'm not a strong supporter of it, and have looked for 
a more robust alternative - especially after fickle corruption from 
bootable backups, and other joys. The bleeding edge version may have 
some of these tweaked out, just noting.
