Mailman doesn't provide the ability to filter based on the actual text
in the message body.

The way to do this is via a custom handler
Doing this directly requires access beyond what you have, but since
installing such a handler for a single list is relatively benign, if
you have the ability to code such a handler in Python, you might be
able to convince your Mailman host to install it for your list(s).
