You really want to avoid doing any kind of anti-spam check for 
outgoing mail from Mailman.  All those checks should be done on 
input, and should not need to be done on output.

Moreover, you really don't want to do any kind of recipient address 
validation, if the recipient in question is not local to your network 
-- that could easily be mistaken by remote sites for a spammer trying 
to verify his mailing list.
