Installing Postfix is a breeze.  The docs included with it should be
enough to get you up and running if you're moderately familiar with
MTAs, and the docs on www.postfix.org, while not as well organized as
they could be, are accurate and readable.  There's enough of us that run
it that if you run into trouble we should be able to help you out.

(It's not like *I*, for one, have anything better to do with my time
that doesn't give me anxiety attacks.)
