I've personally used Sendmail, qmail and Postfix. 

I dislike Sendmail due to it's very non-logical (IMHO) way of being 
configured for various scenarios.  It can do a lot of things.. but I 
tend to think of it as being a fair bit too bloated and cumbersome.  I 
have also used qmail, and whilst its alright, I don't use it anymore and 
switched away from it to Postfix a few years ago.

I actively use Postfix now and like the logical way it handles mail.  
Basically there isn't much you can't do with it, and it interfaces very 
easily with quite a number of pieces of software for email filtering.  
It can be used for very high mail throughput environments without issue, 
and runs fine.
