I agree, although that isn't easily accessible information when using
the smtplib.SMTP.sendmail() interface.
Looking at smtplib.py, I think one might argue that the data() method
could store the text part of it's final response for later perusal,
along the same lines as is done in the ehlo() and helo() methods.
If such change isn't deemed general enough to go into smtplib.py, we
could get this behaviour of data() by making a simple subclass of
smtplib.SMTP for Mailman use.
Should I try knocking together a patch?

I'd say both those things can be pretty useful.
