I second that. I've been running it on a number of systems for a good 
number of years now, and it has been great. I've just noticed recently 
that its auth systems are SASL-compliant, which means I can use them to 
set up SMTP AUTH in Postfix very easily without having to run the 
saslauthd daemon as well. I'm very happy with it.
