I always use Sendmail. It generally comes with most Unix/Linux installs and has been around for years so is fairly stable.

FreeBSD is open source UNIX not Linux. They are very similar but there is a distinction.

Sendmail is certainly available with FreeBSD. Not sure if it comes with the base install though. It seems it would since almost everything I've ever loaded in the UNIX/Linux world has it as a default package to install just so root can send emails to itself.

Yes it comes. Sendmail is a bit tricky and sometimes even mysterious agent. Good alternative is Postfix, also I remember using Exim with great success.
