I suspect that your prior version had set MTA = 'Postfix', and this got
lost in the upgrade. If you had set

MTA = 'Postfix'

in mm_cfg.py as you should have (see the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/fIA9>), it wouldn't be lost in a normal upgrade,
so maybe this was set in Defaults.py.

Anyway, setting

MTA = 'Postfix'

in mm_cfg.py should help.
