Mark (& Dan (& others)),
Thanks for the info.
I figured my #1&2 question was available in the webgui somewhere, but I
just didn't notice that 'Privacy options' expands.
I [now] guess that's what the '...' is for, huh ? :-)
Anywho, your comments on my #3 question, below, gets me to thinking.
I could have the 'config_list -i path/to/file/above' just run whenever, like from cron, no ?
Even better, if there were some kind of 'trigger' to hook when a new list
is created from the web...

For both 1 and 2 go to the admin Privacy options...->Sender filters
page and look at the Non-member filters.

No. You can set
DEFAULT_GENERIC_NONMEMBER_ACTION = 0
in mm_cfg.py, to accept posts from all non-members by default until you
change it, but this isn't what you want.
You could do something like the following:
Create a file containing the one line
accept_these_nonmembers = ['the_bot at example.com']
Then you could create a shell script similar to
bin/config_list -i path/to/file/above $1
and use that to create lists. I can't think of a similar way to do this
if you want to create lists from the web.
