Ok, so I've researched how to do this (and it appears as simple as adding 
an "Approved: <list-admin-password>" header to the outgoing email of 
mail2forum.com), but said implementation requires me to embed, in clear 
text, the list admin password in the mail2forum software sitting on my 
webserver.  Not cool.

Whilelisting the email address doesn't work either, because the From: email 
address is different per forum poster.

The best answer I can see is to patch Mailman somehow to have it allow the 
header unique to Mail2forum.  Could anyone provide me any ideas how 
where/how to best apply this patch?  Should I post this to the devs list?
