Deleting? No, not really. You could automatically discard the
message, but that would cause some problems for people who would
otherwise think that the message was accepted and posted to the list.
Generally speaking, the recommended solution is to automatically
reject such messages -- which informs the sender, and allows them to
take appropriate action.
