CERT advisories for old versions.
People and projects learn from their mistakes, you know. Even Sendmail.
I'd rather have sendmail then any of these new fangled MTAs touted as
"secure" that have never been audited or tested by fire. I especially
like the ones that replace all of stdio with unreadable, obfuscated code.
Or the ones that get roasted on BUGTRAQ for having an insecure mail queue.
OpenBSD will never drop Sendmail. Those of us developers that are also
sysadmins will not allow it.
