I know how to discard messages automatically. But on most lists the
default is to hold them. The question is how mailman is used. If the
list are there for communication only with list members then it's an
option to discard messages. But if you use a list as an official contact
you cannot simply discard all messages from nonmembers.
Sometimes people send mails to a list from an alternative address or
someone not on the list wants to contact the list. If this is an
intended use of a list then discard by default is no option.
