Not a good advice for someone who already has some experience
with Sendmail but none with Postfix. He'll have to read docs
either way, but staying with Sendmail spares him the effort
of reinstallation (including probable breakage of his running
installation), and reading the docs of a familiar product
(Sendmail) is much easier than reading the docs of an
unfamiliar one (Postfix).

Note that I am saying nothing about the relative merits of
Postfix and Sendmail. But indiscriminately recommending to
someone who has a specific and easily solved problem with
product A to drop product A completely and use product B
instead is rarely good advice.
