Yes, but what characteristics does this message have that would allow
Mailman to recognize it as such and treat it differently from a
message to the list from a human who hapens to be a list member
posting from the wrong address or a non-member sending a 'legitimate'

In other words, you may not want to discard all non-member posts. It
may be better if you can filter the spam ahead of Mailman and then
hold the remaining non-member posts for moderator action.
