Not only can you replace sendmail (which I also loathe) with qmail, but it
is highly recommended. Many of the largest mail servers on the 'net use
qmail; you don't really lose any functionality with it that I can tell and
it is definitely robust. I am almost positive that the standard spam
functionality is included in qmail, since it is the "other" big backbone
mail relay. In my experience, qmail is slowly but surely encroaching on
the mindshare space that used to belong to sendmail and for good reason; I
know companies that have migrated from sendmail to qmail but never the
other way around.

Another happy qmail convert,
