Those were the last updates to sendmail on Red Hat 8.0. Your real
problem is that 8.0 has been unsupported by Red Hat since December 2003,
and the last backport done by FedoraLegacy was May 2004. (For that
matter, neither RH7.x, 8.0 or 9 is supported - neither is Fedora Core
versions 1 to 4. If you look at the Sendmail-FAQ
(http://www.sendmail.org/faq/faq.txt), 8.12.11 is available, but is not
being updated, and they are recommending you use sendmail-8.14.1. You
could get the source rpm for sendmail-8.13.8-2 from Fedora Core 6 and
build that on you RH8.0 system, but a far better idea is to get a modern
Linux distribution that is currently supported. See
