Umm. Not sure that version of Sendmail even supported the libmilter API. 
 From what I recall Sendmail 8.12.8 or better supports milters.  And 
since Sendmail 8.13.1 is out and there have been the usual bug and 
security fixes, I would update. Its not that hard, especially if you're 
on a FreeBSD or Debian systems with their package updates. Also in 
8.13.0+ there is a new feature `greet_pause' which is a neat technique 
against spammers that pipeline messages to a server.

However, this list is for support and discussion about milters I've 
authored. All my milters will work on Sendmail 8.12.9 or better. Not too 
sure about versions prior to that point in time. For general sendmail / 
milter help, I'd contact milter.org or post to comp.mail.sendmail.
