This is what I use:
smtp_server = localhost
post_commit_mailer = smtplib
Note that 'smtp_server' reflects my local setup, use whatever is
appropriate for you (an smtp server replying on the default 25 port or
use stmp_server=host:port if you use a non-standard port).
post_commit_to = bazaar-commits at lists.canonical.com
This instruct bzr to send an email to 'post_commit_to' when a commit
occurs in '/home/vila/src/bzr' to the appropriate mailing list.
Note that this applies to all branches below src/bzr and that it applies
to branches, not working trees, so in your case you probably want to
define a section for '/home/myname/bzr/localrepo/localrepo1'

You need the lp:bzr-email plugin:
mkdir -p ~/.bazaar/plugins
bzr branch lp:bzr-email email
will install it in the right place, you can check it with:
bzr plugins -v
-> bzr selftest email
> Ran 20 tests in 1.373s
Those tests doesn't include *sending* emails ('bzr selftest --list email'
will make it a tiny bit clearer and will change once the plugin is
