Mailman is a Mailing List Management system, not an MTA.  The kind of 
thing you're asking for would be within the purview of the MTA, and 
therefore Mailman would know nothing of it.

Heck, I don't even know any MTAs that allow you to do this kind of 
thing, but it's more their line of work than Mailman -- we just dump 
our outgoing traffic on the MTA, and let it do the heavy lifting of 
actually handling the delivery to the respective remote ends.

I can't even imagine what kind of source code modifications would be 
required to achieve your goal.
