I expect the biggest problem to be mobile users who post from multiple IP 
addresses. I'm somewhat bleeding edge ;) for setting up my home server for 
SMTP AUTH and sending all my mail through that. Many ISP's and commercial 
entities are starting to do this as a means of spam control.

I'm also running the MIMEDefang milter under sendmail on all mail going 
through the box, so all list posts first have to navigate SpamAssassin and 
ClamAV before getting to Mailman. That has a good chance of trapping the 
obvious spam and hostile attachments.
