Hi, I have a question about SPAM being sent via Mailman. 

1. Even though the message is marked as SPAM it is still sent to the
2. The sender is not a member of the moderated list
3. Spam filters at the other members site are catching the Spam and
returning the not delivered message (example below)
4. Have I mis-configured something in the Mailman to allow this to
happen (It happens often)

Thank you,
