Setting about this rather depends on whether acceptable and unacceptable
posters are going to be members or non-members of the list.
I would think that a judicious regex in one of the
hold/discard/reject_these_nonmembers field on the web
Privacy Options->[Sender filters] page could partially solve the problem:
For instance, I think this regex will only match, and hence cause to
discard, mail from non-members whose addresses in domains other than
But this would still allow posting by members of the list who are from
outside 'your.domain.com', which might also want to achieve.
Setting moderation for those not-in-your-domain-but-members-of-the-list to
On and setting member_moderation_action to hold/discard/reject should allow
a list which can have a mixed population but can only be posted to by
people in your domain, whether they are members or not.
