How about adding the content-types to the spam-option?  I tried doing
this now, like:

Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="details.exe"

as the spamfilter regexp.  Would that work?

It seems useful with the ability to discard these messages, though.  All
list posts that are being stripped have been spam this far.

Oh.  This would be really useful, because for a certain couple of lists,
that are advertised to the world, the amount of spam is incredible, and
the list owner gets about 150 of these for his approval very day.

Have any suggestions for a workaround?  Creating a fake account for list
owner is the best I've come up with myself.

Right.  Thanks.
