In OpenBSD (at least) I don't think it's hard to make a recommendation.
This comes up regularly, and each time the project leadership recommends
sendmail. And their rationale is compelling...
The only thing I can add to that is "buy the books":
"sendmail", 3rd ed, Costales & Allman, O'Reilly publishers
"sendmail Cookbook", Hunt, O'Reilly publishers
In particular, I like the 2nd reference.
