Dear Tomas:

You need to override the value for SMTPHOST in mm_cfg.py. You are
currently using your own computer (localhost) for a mail server, which is
not configured to relay mail. You either need to supply an SMTPHOST which
allows relaying from your host or alter your own sendmail configuration to
allow relaying from your host. (Modify /etc/mail/relay-domains.)

Best wishes, Jonathan Cohen
