I already use postfix.  However, I have a couple of reasons for using
sendmail in particular.  SMTP authentication with OpenSSL is one of them.

running Postfix...it took me like 5 mins max to set up...very nice, no
complains, no problems and is suposed to be faster / more reliable / more
secure etc than sendmail. www.postfix.org tells all  :)
