I thought I have another machine that can act as a mail server (and is
also running postfix) maybe I could get it to sent the mail. Since I
am running

I thought I could just put the IP number  in mm_cfg.py like this.

SMTPHOST = '123.456.789.6'
SMTPPORT = 0                                      # default from smtplib

When I try this I see the big change in the qfile/out but unfortunatly
the mail is not delivered and in smtp-failures I see (111, 'Connection
refused') messages.  The odd thing is that I do not see rejections in
the postfix logs even with verbose loging.  Am I missing something
about the mailman configuration?
