I think you can do it much more easily than I. I could only do it on
mail.python.org one list at a time via the web interface.

There is a script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/add_banned.py> (and
mirrored at <http://fog.ccsf.edu/~msapiro/scripts/add_banned.py>) which
can be saved in Mailman's bin/ directory and then run via

bin/withlist -a -r add_banned -- '^.*[@.]apot(mail)?\.com$'

to add that re to the ban_list of all lists.
