Well, sendmail is of course the default MTA and like many default choices,
there's often something better. In the alternative MTA world, the major
choices seem to be postfix, qmail and exim. I use Postfix, and I'm happy
with it, but I wouldn't dream of getting in a pissing contest with
exim/qmail supporters. As you already have one exim box, having another would
seem like a reasonable idea - hardly any point in learning the intricacies
of YAMTA for no good reason.
