Being some what biased, why would you want to change? Postfix does
everything that Sendmail does without re-compiling (Or, IMHO, without
needing to understand a strange language for the config file :-) ).

Seriously, there are loads of large sites using both MTAs in the same way
as you are/ want to without any issues. Both will work well so, like OS's,
it comes down to personal preferences. I would suggest that you use what
you are familier with as you are less likely to **** it up and in doing
so, at best fill your queues with Spam and worst case become a black
listed open relay ;-)
