You have sendmail on your maschine running mailman? If it is not configured 
and running, I would leave it as it is...

I'm bit of confused. the lists domain should be ascendnetwork.com but what is 
dnsbuy.com? The Domain on which your mailserver is hosted? Your own local 
domain? And if so why setting the lists domain to ascendnetwork.com?

You don't.

For mailman you might want to have a look at the parameter 
"DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST" in Mailman/Default.py and set it correctly in 
Mailman/mm_cfg.py. As said before, I would leave sendmail as it is...
