It would be smarter to put that ban in at the mailserver level.  Putting a line 
in your /etc/mail/access (if its sendmail) would be nice.  That way no 
processing of the message, less CPU consumption.

But if cannot modify the mailserver and your using mailman 2.1, putting an 
entry in reject_these_nonmembers under Privacy Options -> Sender filters will 
auto reject that address.

I don't think that mm2.0 has this auto-reject feature.
