[Mailman-Users] Newbie: Mailman with MS Exchange Server

As far as I can tell, this question hasn't been addressed anywhere in the
docs or the mailing-list
before, but if it has, please tell me where to RTFM.
Anyways, I'm trying to set up Mailman on linux box which is running in a
WinNT domain and which has
an Exchange Mail Server running. I've set up Mailman (mostly), and I can
create lists which are accessible
over our local LAN. After I run ./newlist and give it the list name (dp) and
my email address (srdjans-at-digitalpersona.com)
I get the request for confirming the subscription in my Outlook Inbox. This
comes From: dp-request at digitalpersona.com
Now I have asked my sysadmin to setup a mail account on the exchange server
with this name (dp-request, for example),
and I can reply to it without problems. My question is how do I "connect"
this MS Exchange account to Mailman??
(I don't understand all the concepts behind mailman's internals, so this
question may be very stupid...)
I've looked through most of the files in $prefix/Mailman/*.py but only
Defaults.py and mm_cfg.py seem appropriate
to make any modifications to... and I have no idea as to what to change.
If you have any input as to how this may be accomplished, please let me
P.S. I've noticed that if I set the SMTPHOST value to 'localhost' then what
I described above works fine. If I set it
to the name of our exchange mail server, then it doesn't send any mail
out... Maybe I've gotten something else setup
