What MTA would you recommend (sendmail is too insecure)?

The two main choices are probably postfix and qmail.


Can I just put the mail in the respective user's home directory with fetchmail, and configure their MUA's to get mail from there? Or do I put it in /var/mail/<username>?

FreeBSD expects new mail to go in /var/mail/$USERNAME. Per se, local delivery is handled by the LDA (ie, procmail, /usr/libexec/mail.local), not by the MTA.

You can run an MTA in a chroot'ed environment. The MTA needs to be started as root, or setuid-root in order to bind to port 25, but can then drop privileges afterwards.
