Of course, I use them but on remote servers. 

Long time I have used Courier MTA.

The Courier Mail Server

And I still use it online. It is way easier to configure than Exim,
Postfix. Though I find the simplest MSMTP good, there are no many
dependencies for local computer. And I just configure it in private
directory, no need for system wide configuration.

OpenSMTPD is good of course. Though it does not handle queue as well
as Courier MTA and has some problems, it is still in development. I
have many emails, many people, so it gives me experience with it.
