[Mailman-Users] How do I discard spam first, then hold non-member posts for moderation?

I suggest using a filter rule "subject: {Spam?}*", provided SpamAssassin
tags spam as {Spam?}.
Or make sure e-mails filtered by SpamAssassin have "X-Spam-HitLevel" and
"X-Spam-Flag" fields.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] How do I discard spam first,then hold non-member
posts for moderation?

It seems that if generic_nonmember_action is set to hold, all
non-member posts are held, regardless of what happens with the spam

All my email is sent through SpamAssassin first for tagging before
being processed by Mailman.  The setting for generic_nonmember_action
is set to hold.  I have the following spam filter rules:

Filter rule 1:

X-Spam-HitLevel: xxxxx

is set to discard.  Filter rule 2:

X-Spam-Flag: YES

is also set to discard.  These are the exact entries in the filter

But when ever spam is sent to the mailing list, it seems that because
generic_nonmember_action is set to hold, the spam message is held
instead of discarding as according to the spam filter.  

Does anyone know why this is happening?  How do I fix this?  Any help
would be appreciated.  Thanks.
