Since you already know Fedora, I'd suggest doing a base Centos install (no
apps), then using the "cheat sheet" here:
It sets up an additional repository that uses much more up-to-date apps than
are in the Centos repository.
Another option would be to install from source, which is actually not
difficult at all, and is very similar to what you probably did 20 years ago,
only easier. (the build scripts are much more polished than in years past).

The desktop approach could be true for *Suse distro, but I can't see any
point in having a desktop approach to a postfix deployment. Or does
Ubuntu server is a desktop only distro now? :o
just my 2 cents...
