You need to run the Django management command 'shell', e.g.
'django-admin shell' or 'manage.py shell' or however you spell it. This
will give you a python shell and you enter the commands at the '>>>'

Rebooting will do it. Restarting Mailman won't as this is a Django
setting, not a Mailman setting. How to update that without a reboot
depends on how you run your Django wsgi app. With mod_wsgi, just
touching the wsgi.py file will do. With gunicorn, I just restart
gunicorn. I'm not sure about uwsgi, I don't use it, but see
