I have used postfix and sendmail on both linux and FreeBSD and I definitely prefer postfix. For starters, its security track-record is much better. Also it was very easy to ste up a system that uses mysql with virtual domains, SASL for relay authentication (also interfacing with mysql) etc... I have horde, postfix, postfix's SASL, and courier imap all using the same tables in mysql for users. I don't know if sendmail can do all this, but I'm sure postfix can do it more easily and in a more secure manner.
