Thanks everyone

After reading all the replies ive decided to go with centos 5.4 and postfix as I am already comfortable with using postfix as a gateway and I can pretty much copy over all my trans/relay and config files.

There is also the MailScanner Gold yum repository, which I believe caters for CentOS. Although it is a paid service it will help you get up and running quickly. There is also the MailScanner beta repository that is free I think?
