Actually, if you list is spam at somedomain.com Mailman by default puts in 
a field labeled [spam] in every email.  I just experienced this and it 
is for easy detection of mailing lists.  To remove this (I had to do it 
on 283 mailing lists!), go to the following:

Go to your mailman list login like:


login and delete [spam] from the following line:

Prefix for subject line of list postings. : [spam]

Save and voila, you are done.
