The differences are small and subtle. The best way to find out if
they are relevant for you is to build a testbed and see how well
things work.

One problem is that the incoming queue fills up when mail arrives
faster than it can be delivered, but I haven't found a solution
for that yet. One possibility is to accept less inbound mail (a
lower process limit for inbound SMTP), but that could upset people
who use netscape etc. to submit mail via the SMTP port and who find
that the SMTP port is dead when the system is busy.
