As zope.sendmail commits in tpc_finish, there is no additional issue
using it with zope.sqlalchemy in 1pc than with a 2pc data manager. If
it fails you will end up in an inconsistent state whatever. It's just
that with the maildir implementation, it pretty much can't fail as it
is only a rename and that should always succeed. Really, it should
register as an after commit hook instead. When an after commit hook
fails, the error is caught, logged, and then it continues.
