Having used Postfix and Exim on net4801 (and qmail and Sendmail at
various points on other hardware), I'd say probably any mail daemon
you might try will probably be fine. Whichever you can administer
most effectively is probably the best choice. EC's ISP obviously
chose different to him|her (see headers)! Most servers of the type
that will see much difference between these programs are probably
running on hardware with more RAM than the current range of Soekris
boards supports anyway.
Anyone looking to try qmail out might want to look at qmail.org and
not just DJB's website, where the netqmail 'distribution' is
available [actually it's 1.03 with a patchset, since distribution of
modified qmail files is not permitted] - this will probably save
quite some effort identifying which of the numerous patches available
are the most important.
The thing that is more likely to cause a problem with resource use is
