Assuming your mailman and sendmail installation are on the same machine,
is it not possible to configure sendmail to accept relay without
authentication from localhost (

SMTP auth isn't really buying you much here - other than I guess making
it a little harder to configure an open relay by accident (which is
useful).  However the auth will impact your SMTP sessions - although not
to an extent likely to significantly impair performance.
