If you choose to go with sendmail, you should use the base-system's.
It's pretty up to date with critical patches and the like.

I personally prefer Postfix, which is also used by the mail-servers at
FreeBSD.org. The UCE blocking support offered by it is pretty good,
and configuration is straightforward. You don't even need to remove 
the base-system's MTA, just tweak rc.conf and mailer.conf and you're
up and away.
