With SMTPDirect Mailman passes outgoing messages to the outgoing MTA 
using the SMTProtocol; it doesn't invoke programs to perform this task, 
it use a connection to an instance of the MTA, running as a daemon, to 
pass the message to that daemon. The SENDMAIL_CMD value is irrelevant 
when SMTPDirect is used for outgoing messages; it is only relevant when 
the Sendmail module option is used as it tells that module how to run 
an one of the MTA's programs  so that it can pass the message to it.

With SMTPDirect, also check under the heading "# Delivery defaults" in 
$prefix/Defaults.py in case you want/need to tweak any of MM's SMTP 
related config variables.
