There is no configuration for this. Notifications about posts are
treated the same as notices about subscription requests.

You can turn off the immediate notices for a list by setting General
Options -> admin_immed_notify to No. You can turn off daily summary
notices for ALL lists by removing the cron/checkdbs entry from
Mailman's crontab.

Anything else requires modifying code.
