It looks like only sendmail is in the main distribution (and therefore only
sendmail is audited), right? Exim and postfix are in the ports... and qmail?

Lets say I use sendmail on the internal mailserver. Which mail daemon is
small and secure for the DMZ system? It only acts as a store and forward
proxy and does not need to "process" the mails (therefore I don't need the
power of sendmail or exim (I don't know qmail and postfix))...
