You also need to be willing to stay on top of your outgoing mail to make
sure your network isn't sending spam, and you need to monitor the
various blacklists to make sure your SMTP servers are not ending up on
them.  It's not like (for example) an IMAP server, which once you have
working is mostly maintenance-free.
