Can you imagine what managing postfix is like for someone who has been a windows jockey their entire career? It's no surprise at all to me that exchange admins wouldn't care for it. I'll admit that I worked on sendmail for years before ever touching postfix, and do find postfix to be a better alternative for security and scalability, but I have yes to see/understand the "easier to manage" aspects of it. As far as I'm concerned, both are equally as confusing. And yes, I'm down and dirty on the CLI with vim, not using some gui frontend for either.

It's obvious you have never used Zimbra.
You don't have to manage postfix, everything (except if you WANT to go hardcore) is managed with a web interface. No CLI or vim skills required.
