These settings weren't set in mm_cfg.py, but in Defaults.py. I've put them
in mm_cfg.py too, but no luck.

I've already seen that page, and other than flagging up some incorrect

I live in the "If you get no posts but you do get some notifications" camp,
so Mailman must be communicating with Exim somehow.
I'm at a total loss as to what's going wrong, especially as the logs are
showing nothing, but Exim is saying "completed".
