The sendmail version included with FreeBSD ist primarily intended for
inter-program communication, log, and local notification. Users who
want to run "real mail" systems will probably install Postfix or Exim
anyway, combined with other services to complete the requirements
(MTA, MDA, IMAP services etc.). Those will be obtained from the ports
collection where a recent version is available, and which can be up-
dated independently from the OS.

Oh, and why should FreeBSD ship with something that is being attacked? :-)
