I just inherited ownership of a Mailman 2.1.5 list, my first exposure to 
Mailman, though I've run lists on majordomo, Yahoo!, etc.  I've checked 
the FAQ, but didn't find answers to these:

1) If my list is set so that only members can post, and I have a spam 
filter set up to hold messages whose subject line contains, for example, 
the word "spam,"  why do non-member messages with "spam" in the subject 
get put in the approval queue?  Shouldn't the non-member filter take 
precedence over the "spam" filter, and reject the message without 
requiring moderator intervention?  Is there a way to set that?

2) Is there a way to set up a filter to catch messages with a blank 
subject line?  I tried "subject:\s$", but this did nothing.

Thank you!
