sendmail is also bundled with OpenBSD, which is proactively rabid about
security. Considering sendmail's track record, the OpenBSD FAQ says
something to the effect that the maintainers of sendmail are responsive
to security issues, unlike many projects, and the code now appears to be
as secure as anything else out there.
Configuration is pretty easy with the m4 macros, and sendmail still
amounts to something of a de-facto standard.
