You want to run spamassassin and ClamAV or equivalents or possibly
MailScanner on incoming mail. You set this up in the MTA (exim on
cPanel ?). You possibly set this up in the MTA directly or by having
the MTA invoke Procmail to deliver the mail and using Procmail recipes
to scan the mail for spam/viruses.

This all happens before Mailman and is a cPanel/MTA question, not a
Mailman question.
