You could try uncommenting the stuff in Utils.py in TrySMTPDelivery for more

You might also try 

python -i bin/withlist <listname>

and then

sys.path.insert("/home/mailman/Mailman")  (Barry, why doesn't bin/withlist do this?)

mm_cfg.SMTPHOST		 (to make sure you have the host you think configured)
import smtplib
s=smtplib.SMTP(mm_cfg.SMTPHOST)	(to do the same thing TrySMTPDelivery does)
