[Mailman-Users] resent-to possibly gets a message through moderation?

I am running several mailing lists using mailman. Latest available 
debian package.

A member of one of my mailing lists got a spam message (it was confirmed 
on several levels).

We are not yet exactly sure how it happened, but the result was him 
re-sending the message to the list, carbon-copied from the spam.

Here is what I suspect caused mailman to accept the message without 
moderation, even though the FROM: address is not subscribed:

Resent-To: mylist at mybox.mydomain
From: "inquisitorRobbins" <widowhoodCorbett at coachdriverswithen.com>
Resent-Message-Id: <MC6-F1009x0j1TsvfcJ00092c47 at coachdriverswithen.com>
Resent-From: "member name" <member at email.address>

If it isn't it and I completely mis-understood what happened, or you 
require any further information to find out how mailman let this email 
through, please let me know. I am somewhat worried.

Thank you for your help,

	Gadi Evron.
