qmail is very flexible once you grok the configuration, which 
is an argument that you could use against anything complex.

qmail has not had any bugs or security issues to resolve - if 
its not broken do not fix it.

Some people swear by qmail, exim, postfix and even sendmail.  
At the end of the day what ever you can configure securely is 
probably the best bet, but not necessarily the latest version.
