But to answer you - if you want fast, no frills, nothing fancy,

Sendmail/qopper - I prefer Postfix, but then you may not wish to spend 
the time learning all the nifty things you can do with it. Postfix "can" 
be a chore - as with any mail server. It's all up to you and how much 
you are willing to invest.

Best regards,

If at first you don't succeed,
blame it on your supervisor.
