Hope this clear to you..
The thread opener said the send mail functionality works, so there is no need for another way of sending mail (this is in fact what you have described).

Further, using sendmail directly is a very bad practice. Save for testing the mail system upon installation it is clearly to be avoided. Use a mail client if you want client functionality and leave the daemon alone, it has other work to do.

I hope this helps.

mlmmj-maintd - maintenance for mlmmj maintained lists SYNOPSIS
mlmmj-maintd [-F] [-d | -L] /path/to/dir -d: Full path to directory with lists -L: Full path to list directory -F: Don't fork, performing one maintenance run only. DESCRIPTION
This is the program doing the maintenance for an mlmmj based mailing list. It will unsubscribe people who have bounced for long enough, send out bounce probes, resend mails that couldn't be delivered to relayhost, clean out stale requests for e.g. subscription, resend list mails and clean up leftover files etc. If a directory containing several lists exists, the -d can be used to specify this, making mlmmj-maintd perform a maintenance run in every listdir below the specified one. Only either -d or -L can be specified at the same time. It will run as a daemon, unless the -F switch is specified, in which case it just runs once. The -F option should be used when one wants to avoid running another daemon, and use e.g. cron to control it instead. In case cron is used, mlmmj-maintd should be run every 2 hours or so. An example crontab entry: 0 */2 * * * /usr/bin/mlmmj-maintd -F -L /path/to/list AUTHORS
