There is a setting for that, it's on the privacy options->recipient
filters page in the web interface. The setting is called

As far as I know, this won't work. I believe mailman counts the total
number of addresses in the To: and CC: headers.
>Solutions, thoughts, opinions?
I would suggest that this user should use BCC: for the other
recipients unless there is a valid reason that everyone should be
able to see their e-mail addresses. I say this because I am a huge
advocate of privacy and don't believe in disclosing e-mail addresses
to just anyone.
