First of all, posters is a list of strings, not a string so that should

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

It appears that config_list is escaping the '\' character by doubling
it. If this still occurs after you make it a list, You can try setting
posters using withlist.

For example:

$ bin/withlist -l testlist
Loading list testlist (locked)
The variable `m' is the testlist MailList instance
>>> m.posters=['^\.+ at my\.uni\.es']
>>> m.Save()
>>>                             <- control-D
Unlocking (but not saving) list: mailman
