That's fine. You now have the correct settings in mm_cfg.py so it
doesn't matter what's in Defaults.py for these. What will be in
Defaults.py after an upgrade depends on how you upgrade. If you
upgrade from our source, you set these things in Defaults.py with the
--with-urlhost= and --with-mailhost= options to configure.
