[Mailman-Users] discard nonmembers in 2.0.7

I am on an isp (verio) which has not upgraded mailman beyond 2.0.7, 
and has no plans to do so.
I am desperate for some method that will discard posts from 
non-members (spam); 2.0.7 won't do that, I gather 2.1.5 will.

I already adopted the nice script that checks the discard button on 
all messages, but I still have to look at the subject line of each 
one of several hundred, and mailmain crashes if I don't tend to this 

Verio offers an expensive vps server on which I could install my own 
mailman 2.1.5, but I am not confident I could do the installation.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to survive in a spam 
infested world with 2.0.7. Is there a script I could install, or 
something of that ilk?
