My goodness...that version is about six years out of date.

Simply installing a newer version of sendmail probably isn't adequate in terms 
of security, although you can go to and pick up 8.11.7 or 
8.12.9; you should probably upgrade the entire operating system to something 
more recent in order to get fixes for problems with the DNS resolver libraries, 
zlib, and lots of other things.
