define(`SMART_HOST', `FQDN-of-your-outbound-SMTP-relay')

in the sendmail.mc file might do it.

But there is no reason why Mailman cannot use SMTP to talk direct to an 
outbound SMTP server on another machine (which could be a Microsoft 
Exchange Server) rather than passing outbound messages to a local 
sendmail instance and having it forward them to the relay. To do this 
set the value of SMTPHOST in mm_cfg.py to point to the outbound SMTP 
server and ensure that the default DELIVERY_MODULE = 'SMTPDirect' from 
Defaults.py has not been changed in mm_cfg.py
