To use a remote SMTP server for outgoing mail, simply set SMTPHOST and
maybe SMTPPORT in mm_cfg.py. See

To use a remote server for incoming mail to Mailman is much more
complex. A search of the archives of this list for "fetchmail" will
turn up some info

Depending on how remote the server is, it may be possible to use NFS to
give the remote server access to the mail wrapper on the Mailman host
which can be another way to do it.
