You can use the ban_list to block subscription from all but your
domain. See

Mailman 2.2 will have an auto approval feature which would allow you to
require approval for subscriptions and exempt your domain from the
requirement, but there is as yet no schedule for the release of 2.2,
but the current branch at
<https://code.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/2.2> at rev 1006
should be quite usable except for languages other than English.
