Sendmail is one program that implements the SMTP protocol. You
could choose another program, but you would need to have something
like sendmail in order for this to function correctly.

The sendmail restricted shell (smrsh) apparently is not
configured to allow you to send mail to the "mailman" program. You
need to correct this.
However, the details of how to do this are beyond the scope of
this mailing list. Please see the FAQ and other documentation at
www.sendmail.org, the documentation provided by your OS vendor
regarding the configuration of sendmail, etc....
