It is Privacy options...->Sender filters->accept_these_nonmembers.

Users cannot add addresses to accept_these_nonmembers. The user's only
option in current Mailman (it will change in the future) is to
subscribe multiple addresses and set some of those to NOMAIL as

The admin can add addresses (or patterns) to accept_these_nonmembers,
and a moderator has the ability when processing a nonmember post in
the admindb interface to add the poster's address to any of the
*_these_nonmembers filters.
