This probably has nothing to do with it, but if the above setting for
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST is different from the one in Defaults.py, you should add

The next five settings are all equivalent to the defaults. It's OK to
have them in mm_cfg.py for documentation, but they aren't needed.

What happens if you mail directly to the listname-owner address?
Do other Mailman generated notices get delivered - e.g. a subscription
confirmation or a list welcome message?
