--with-mailhost= is the domain to which you address list mail. Do you
really send your list mail to listname at www.tourismus-osnabrueck.de?
In your previous posts, your mail host was lists.gforge.geoplp.de

What special entries are you looking for? What you have is an mm_cfg.py
from a fresh install. Did you have a previous mm_cfg.py at
/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py? If so, it shouldn't have been
overwritten, but if it was somewhere else, it's still there.
According to the aliases you previously posted, your prior mailman was
in /var/lib/mailman. Do you now have two Mailman installations, one in
/var/lib/mailman with lists and appropriate sendmail aliases and one
in /usr/local/mailman with no lists and no sendmail aliases?

Note that your original problem was with sendmail, not with Mailman, so
installing Mailman from source can't be expected to fix it.
