YES!!! I think this would be a very convenient feature, and don't
understand why it hasn't been implemented yet. 

Although delivering non-member mail to a moderator is "politically
correct" and convenient, because eventually non-member mail might be of
interest to a certain mail list, it would be also convenient to have an
option to auto-reject (with or wihtout reply message) non-member email.
In fact I'm moderating a list in which this feature would be desirable.
