I don't think so. Depending on the nature of the triggers, it may be
possible to do this outside of Mailman with some other process that
posts to the list.

Set Privacy options... -> Sender filters -> default_member_moderation
to Yes. This will moderate new members by default. There is no way to
automatically set moderation off after nn posts, but the moderator
summary interface contains a check box to clear a members moderation
flag for posts from moderated members so it is easy to do this
manually when approving the moderated member's post.
