This looks to me like roundup cannot send back the response to the
browser because the browser has closed the connection. This traceback is
not from the mail gateway.

If the whole procedure takes a *long* time, the browser may have timed
out at that point.

So if the problem is really with outgoing mail you should check your
mail setup: It may well be that your configured mail host is incorrect
or not reachable due to firewall or similar issues.

You should check that you can connect to the mail gateway from the
roundup machine, so if you have configured e.g. 

host =
port = 25

you should check that you can connect to that host on the configured
port, e.g. using telnet:

% telnet 25
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
220 ESMTP Postfix (Debian/GNU)
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.

Of course the given domain doesn't exist and is an invented example.
