[Mailman-Users] Mail Loops created by Auto-Responders

Still trying to figure out how to stop auto-replies from auto-responders from clogging up my mailing list. I've set the system so that non-members cannot post to the list but somehow auto-responder mails seem to get through. Help!

On a different mail system that I use (as a subscriber), it is possible 
to set up a PML (Personalised Mailing List).

It works like this:

An approved user can specify certain keywords. Then, when one of those 
keywords appears in a mail on *any* list on the system, a copy of that 
message is automatically posted to the user (even if they are not a 
subscriber to the list on which the message appears).

Its kind of neat... especially for use on something such as my lists, 
which are genealogy related. A keyword can be for example, a surname.

Is there any way that such a PML system can be evoked with Mailman?
