A big win is that you can use mailwatch with MS. The analogue for
amavisd-new is Maia Mailguard, but I was always put off by the fact that
it uses a forked version of amavisd-new.

I inherited a MS/exim setup here & was very impressed with the
combination. I have since migrated the setup to new hardware in a new dc.

Let's also not forget that MS enjoys a level of developer support that
so good it borders on insane :)
