What is the best Mailer agent to use with Mailman. Right now I am using sendmail and it seems to be fine.
Sendmail works, but does not perform well. It is a very (unnecessarily) complex piece of software which has a long history of security problem which encourage me to avoid it. Other possible choices for an MTA enclude Exim, Postfix, and QMail.
If you look back in the archives for this list a couple weeks ago, you'll find a fairly thorough coverage of the reasons for making the various choices, My own preference is Exim, Barry's preference is Postfix, others manage to suffer Dan Bernstein and choose QMail.
They all work equally well -- which is to say, far better than Sendmail.
