You're looking for a custom handler.  Unfortunately, there don't 
appear to be any FAQs addressing this issue, but I do know that this 
subject has been discussed many times on the mailman-users and 
mailman-developers lists, so you should search the archives.

When you find posts that provide the information you need, please 
feel free to create a suitable entry for the subject in the 
community-supported FAQ Wizard.
