The problem with this approach is that Mailman will still only use the
single specified mail server, rather than processing a list of
mailservers defined as MX records for a DNS domain. It would be a nice
addition if Mailman allowed SMTPHOST to be set to either an explicit
host or a domain to be queried. Sendmail accomplishes this in
mailertable by using these two formats:
Using the lookup method causes Sendmail to query DNS for the current MX
host(s) and then traverse the list until it finds one available.
