If you have restarted Mailman after adding the set_debuglevel(1) call,
you should at least see the connect attempt logged.

You can try the following:

Give the command


It will prompt you for a To: and From: address and a message body and
then attempt to send that via 'localhost' port 25 and print all the
debugging info.

Note that the /usr/lib/python2.x part of the above needs to be
adjusted, but it is the path to your installed Python library. It is
usually /usr/lib/python2.x where 2.x is your Python version.
