It depends on what you're doing and what's in Defaults.py. If the
settings in Defaults.py for DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST
are correct, then you don't need the two lines in mm_cfg.py (and you
also don't need to set DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST in

If the settings in Defaults.py for DEFAULT_URL_HOST and/or
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST need changing in mm_cfg.py, then you also need the
two above lines. This affects mostly creation of new lists, but also
fix_url and the domain of the site email address on the listinfo pages
and some other places.
