You could have the mail2forum software add an appropriate "Approved:" 
header to the message, and that would go through.  Alternatively, you 
could configure the mail2forum software to always use the same e-mail 
address when posting to the list, and that e-mail address would be on 
the "whitelist" and allowed to post.

Either solution would work, and you can read more about this sort of 
stuff in the Mailman documentation and the FAQ.
