    Mailman pipes messages through the local MTA, however, you can configure that MTA to use a SmartHost.  What this means is that Mailman will send its messages to the local MTA which in turn relays them to the SmartHost (a completely different machine) which will then deliver the message to the final recipient.  Read sendmail's documentation on how to set this up.
