An alternative is to let your server at Godaddy send the emails out directly via MX lookups, rather than sending it off to a smarthost.  This would be an MTA configuration option, unless you specified an SMTP server directly in mm_cfg.py, in which case remove it, and Mailman will submit the messages through the MTA on localhost.
