The first thing you need to do is set the default non-member action to 
accept.  (see Privacty Settings/Sender Filters)

If you truly want to let everything through, you will also want to set the 
maximum message size (in General options) to 0 (i.e. unlimited), and not 
require the list name to be in the To or Cc field of the message (see 
privacty/recipient filters).   you may also want to set the max number of 
recipients to something high.

These are the sorts of things I did when I set up an a mailing list to act 
like an Email address for general enquiries.
