Yes I agree

I extensively used qmail/vpopmail at the ISP I used to own.

However, I sold the business to a larger ISP last year, and now "I work for
them". They use postfix as their standard mail server. Since being exposed
to this software I marvel at all the fabulous features compared with qmail.
In particular the ease that you can perform a vast array of checks /
filtering on incoming mail. The more I see of postfix, the more I understand
just how out-of-date that qmail really is.

But! whenever I demonstrate the vpopmail software to any of the guys at my
new place of employment, they are the ones who are marvelling at the ease of
use and features of vpopmail.

The perfect world would be a vpopmail mailbox management combined with
postfix MTA  :-)
