Hi Dennis:

In regards to non-members, you can adjust the following setting to 
discard on the Privacy options --> Sender Filters page:

"Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit 
action is defined."

As for the message-size exceeded messages, you can just leave them in 
the moderation queue and just adjust the following General Options page 
setting to something that would work for you:

"Discard held messages older than this number of days. Use 0 for no 
automatic discarding."

Someone else may have a better suggestion.
