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.
