Gof or postfix. It's flast and lightweight. exim will also do the job,  
but I don't know that too well, so I can't say. qmail was last updated  
in 1998 or so and is no longer maintained, although it will certainly  
work (it used to be the most stable MTA for years). Postfix was built  
on more or less the same ideas as qmail, so even most of the toughest  
fans of qmail have now switched to postfix.
