I think you can set

DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = '[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]'

and Mailman will work. but you may have issues with other MTAs refusing
to deliver to address literals.

OTOH, for less that $1.00/month you can register a domain including DNS
service with, e.g., <http://www.godaddy.com/>.
