Because that's what you configured in Mailman either with the
--with-mailhost configure option or after the fact by setting
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST in mm_cfg.py.

"Successfully invited:" means the invitation was sent to the addresses
listed. Why do you think it's an error?

Here's an example of the report from an attempt to invite 3 addresses,
one of which succeeded.

Successfully invited:

    * mark+test at msapiro.net 

Error inviting:

    * qa#$"@example.com -- Bad/Invalid email address
    * mark+junk at msapiro.net -- Already a member 

If what you mean is you "Successfully invite" someone, but the
invitation is not received, see the FAQ at
