Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes the MTA is running on the mailman machine.

No I have not changed the options SMTPHOST and SMTPPORT, they are still
set to their default settings. SMTPHOST 'localhost' SMTPPORT '0'.

Have you overriden the 'SMTPHOST' or 'SMTPPORT' options in mm_cfg.py?
Alternatively, have you changed one of them in Defaults.py? (The latter
would be a bad thing).

The default SMTPHOST is 'localhost', and the port is 0, which means the
default. If you aren't running an MTA on the machine running Mailman
(from what I understand, you are?), you'll need to change them. If
you've changed them to something else, that may be the problem.
