on the web interface, go to "Privacy options..." / "Sender Filters".  At 
the bottom of the page there's a setting that says "Action to take for 
postings from non-members for which no explicit action is defined".  Set it 
to "Discard"  You'll probably also want to set the option below it to "No" 
so your administrator/moderator doesn't get spammed.
