Which is better? Microsoft Exchange 2016 or Linux-based SMTP Servers?

Exchange is nice, but there is a lot involved setting it up, and its 
expensive. Also, it would be a bad idea to setup an email server from 
scratch for the average user. There are a few distros out there with 
everything installed for you. I would install one of those in a KVM 
virtual machine, if you want linux-based.

One I use is 'SME Server' because I can modify the spam/virus filters to 
include many free virus databases, and I can modify the spam filters in 
many ways as well.
