We run qmail for at eXostream for our customers.  It is a great piece of
software.  DJB knows how to program and has security on his mind at all
times.  As for sendmail, though it has fixed it's large security holes,
it's fundamental design is weak and insecure.  I would not recommend
unless absolutely necessary.  Also, you can use one of the qmail
binaries to simulate the sendmail binary.

 From what i know (a few days investigation), qmail is a superior
package.  I 
would go with it unless you need functionality that only sendmail has.
qmail 
has been v. solid for me since set up.  Set up wasn't that easy, though.

Qmail's author, Dan Bernstein, or "DJB", has a reputation for great code
that is 
not great re: friendliness and documentation, and I think that's true of
qmail. 
  There are supposed to be a couple of good, proprietary books on it,
however. 
Might also try newsgroup alt.comp.mail.qmail when/if you get stuck.
