What is an 'anonymous' post?

I replied to you on Tuesday. Unfortunately, I neglected to copy the
list on my first reply.

It seems like right now you have Privacy options...->Sender
filters->generic_nonmember_action set to Reject. Set it to Discard.

In any case, the "your post is not allowed" message is due to some
Reject action which if changed to Discard will cause the post to be
silently ignored.

However, as pointed out in other replies, filtering in the MTA ahead of
Mailman is a better approach.
