So mailman is able to send via qmail and the important qrunners are

Mailman can deliver a message with one recipient to Qmail and Qmail
sends it. That says a lot of things are working, but it doesn't say
that Qmail will accept and send a message with many recipients, so
this may or may not be a Qmail issue.

No. Never make changes to Defaults.py. If you needed to change SMTPHOST
and/or SMTPPORT, you would just put the settings in mm_cfg.py and they
would override those in Defaults.py, but in your case, the defaults
are correct or Mailman wouldn't be able to send at all.

I will continue this reply to your latest post which just arrived here.
