I'm not personally really worried about this. - I was just calling out
that it is a difference. For others that do care. ;-)

I agree that the VPS Smart Host is a good solution. However that puts
you in a position that you are now administering multiple mail servers.
I'd suggest that people new to mail servers stick with a single $5 ~ $10
/ month VPS that does all of the roles. - Then graduate to the
multiple server solution.

I think it depends what part of the communications you're worried about.
S/MIME and PGP tend to cover a lot of the (non-metadata) concern.
