If it was done right and there would have been no need for all those blobs of caulking.
Look at how far out it sits out from the brick moulding, completly wrong. That's going to hold water and let it get soaked into the end grain.
I never use wooden brick moulding anymore. Only vinyl. No more rot at the bottom or painting.

What type of siding it that?
Something looks really off on the left hand side of the door in that inside corner.
Just judging from what little I can see there may also be an issue with that door being out of square. All I can see is how far off the exposure is on what looks like the screen or the door panel on the top left. (may well be just the angle of the picture)

You've really got a mess there, from the siding to the trim to the flashing... If it were me, I'd rip off everything on that wall (door area) and redo it properly. You are fortunate enough that its a pretty small space to have to remove. You are really playing with fire if you don't. The only thing that is probably keeping that leak-free as it is would be the overhang above.

That's what I was afraid you guys would say.. *sigh* Basically the top piece of siding overlaps the top horizontal piece of moulding so that water shouldn't hit the moulding from the top, and the moudling is caulked on both sides. The same goes for the sides of the moulding. I've seen a couple doors in the neighborhood that were changed and looks like they just removed the door, and just replaced the moulding and caulked both sides like it is now..

The siding is aluminum.

So question then is how would I go about doing it correctly? How should the moulding be installed in relation to the flashing? Since the moulding sits to the outside of the rough opening, it has to be there, or I'd have to redo all the horizontal siding next to the sliding door as it'd be an inch shot on each side..? I'm definitely lost in terms of what the best way to do it is.. *knock on wood* there doesn't seem to be a problem with water getting into the house as the overhang seems to be working.
