A proprietary milter speaking proprietary protocol with some proprietary
daemon (I know I've seen some anti-virus solutions using milter,
probably there are some anti-spam commercial systems as well).

We, the Sendmail users, are so happy with our MTA that we've never tried
to really use Exim.

I myself experimented with Exim few years ago, but I couldn't make it
accept mail for wildcard domain (user * somewhere com). Probably an easy
thing if you know its language, but it was so much easier to just use
Sendmail. I can't really tell if Exim can't do this (actually, I guess
it can), so there's no real point in arguing with you that it can't.

The problem here is that in order to really compare two advanced
programs, you have to become an expert in both, which doesn't make sense
(unless comparing the two programs is your job or religion :)).

By the way, does anyone know, which MTA will be the default for RHEL 5?
