Postfix could do hoops, but only if configured correctly... same goes
for _any_ MTA. So what would you gain by a switch? MTAs are complex
beasts, even without UCE measures, and adding MailScanner (wonderful
as it is) does add more complexity. Bottom line is that you'll need
read a lot to get the best from any MTA you choose to use. Did you?
Will you?
A plain vanilla PF install, with a plain vanilla MailScanner install,
will likely not get the best out of the system. Neither will a plain
vanilla Exim install.

Then again, if you find Exim simpler to grasp, why... more power to you;-).
