This is an old version of Mailman. Those attributes don't exist in
current versions, but assuming that current syntax might apply here,

posters = ['^\.+ at my\.uni\.es']

This assumes that a regular expression is allowed in the 'posters' list
and an initial '^' signals a regular expression.

In current Mailman, this would be 'accept_these_nonmembers' and the
above syntax would work.
