as much as i dislike sendmail, i think if you use something like
smtpfeed w/ it, it has comparable performance to qmail and zmailer.  i
saw this talk last month where someone was comparing various smtpds
and there was this graph:


unfortunately, i think you will find it rather hard to read because the
graph is too small :-(  (the talk was also not in english so looking
at the other slides may not be very helpful)

that said, imho, if someone hasn't had much experience w/ any
particular smtpd, i would definitely not recommend starting off w/
sendmail :-)

just my $.02
