Advantages of Qmail over Sendmail
I have been using Sendmail for awhile now and have grown quite comfortable with it... However I am also the type that I like to try new things..... With that I am considering replacing Sendmail with Qmail... It appears everyone seems to tout “Qmail is much better than Sendmail”
I'd like to elicit everyone’s opinions on the Qmail vs. Sendmail debate.
Advantages? Disadvantages? Or just general thoughts?
(or does anyone suggest something differnet?)

More secure, better designed, modular, faster, more reliable, easier to configure, don't have to upgrade it every few months or worry about being vulnerable to something due to some obscure feature being enabled...
These are just some of the benefits of qmail over sendmail.

Did you move to qmail:? If so, did you use the tutorial on the qmailrocks.org site? I tried it 5-6 times, but never got all the way through it...

The standard installation (i.e. the one which is supported by people on the qmail list) is documented at http://www.lifewithqmail.org

Not yet. I am planning on it though.. But first I need to setup a test machine to try it on. I dont really want to use my production server for that
