We actually use a modified version of that for some of the lists, but
the specific list is one where the moderator approves every post, and he
can't easily tell who is a legitimate member or not. So it comes down to
removing only those messages held because they were posted by

I was actually thinking of inserting this in the aliases for a couple of
reasons. We already have some code that builds password files for
apache, so that parsing the email and validating it against mailman is
not an issue. Then, the only other issue is to reflect the email back to
the sender with the appropriate rejection message.
