There is no such function within Mailman. You'd have to implement it
yourself. I'm not aware of anyone that has done so. There is a five
year old feature request at
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/266729>, but nothing has been
done on this.

Usually, this sort of thing is handled by moderation although I
understand that isn't the answer in every case.
