These issues are mostly larger than Mailman and more SMTP related than
any thing else. As such, traditional SMTP anti-spam solutions are
probably the best fix here.
The first things that come to mind are
- Domain Keys
- Something like Sendmail's "protected recipients" or comparable.

I don't think that Mailman currently does this, but I'm betting that
others can come up with a way to make it do it.
