(OT) Prejudice against sendmail?

Hi all, 

I don't want to start another holy war like the mutt vs. GUI mailer that
is raging on this list. So please: no emotions! Get a real religion
instead! ;-)

As I was reading about the different MTAs, I collected some arguments pro
and contra sendmail, which almost everywhere can be found:

  * very powerful
  * very flexible
  * biggest support and development community

  * attacked frequently
    (either because of design weakness or because it's so commonly
  * difficult to configure
  * security holes

Do you have some expirience with sendmail that could confirm or refute
this common opinion?
