I have mailman set to hold non-member posts to email list. I also have 
all lists setup to discard any message the has been tagged as spam by 
spammassassin. I have tried filtering on the {spam?} subject line and 
also on the x-spamcheck headers. Unfortunately the lists grab the 
message as a non-member post before it identifies it as spam so most of 
my held messages are spam messages. Is there a way to change the order 
of this so it will discard the spam messages before it checks for 

Thanks for any help.
