I did manage to get mailman set up to run with sendmail & wanted to
report back to the list on what was useful.  First, Todd's advice to
comment out the DAEMON_OPTIONS in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc

dnl # DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl

(Two comments on this - what an odd way to comment out something and
also, the inline instructions in the rpm aren't all that clear - "Remove
the loopback dnl # address restriction to accept email from the internet
or intranet." - why not just say comment out the line below???)

I also kept looking for setup/install instructions within the Mailman
Documentation list here (doesn't seem to be an option):

Searching the whole faq here though provided some very useful info:

These were particularly helpful:

I did try exim & postfix, but couldn't get either to work..
