My main complaint with qmail is that it's not very standard.  The core
of qmail hasn't been updated in a couple years (I think that's right,
correct me if I'm wrong), so in order to update it or add
functionality, you have to apply a bunch of patches from a bunch of
sources.

I like the fact that postfix is all centralized.
