Did you restart Mailman after the dnspython install?

What if you invoke the Python that Mailman uses and do

>>> import dns.resolver
>>> dns.rdatatype.TXT

Note that if you just

import dns

you will get the AttributeError upon reference to dns.rdatatype.TXT, but
it should work after importing dns.resolver which Utils.py does.
