When you first pull up the moderation queue for a mailing list, 
anything that is held gives you at least one set of options you can 
take (allow, reject, discard, etc...) but if the post came from a 
non-member you get an additional set of options you can take 
(including putting the sender address on the auto-discard list, the 
auto-accept list, etc...).

This is the only other way I know of to "automatically" put addresses 
on one of the per-list whitelists or blacklists.
