Not really. Using the m4 package, it's pretty easy to build a
sendmail.mc file that can be compiled into a suitable sendmail.cf.
Many sendmail.mc files can be just two or three lines long.

You could just select their server as the outbound mail server,
and never have to bother with running your own local copy of sendmail.

We could help with the mailman-specific parts, if there's
anything in the mailman FAQ that you don't understand. With the
sendmail-specific parts, you'd be better off going to a
sendmail-specific newsgroup or mailing list, or asking for assistance
from your provider.

No, it's not particularly hard. See
and other FAQ entries from the FAQ Wizard at
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py> which match the string
"sendmail", or any other string you may care to search for.
