Assuming you don't want to just add a regexp to accept_these_nonmembers
to all lists which is easy to do, at least for existing lists, with the
script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/non_members>, you would need
to do this with a custom handler which would set approved=True in the
message's metadata if the sender was from the white listed domain.

The problem with this approach is that the custom handler would have to
be in the pipeline prior to Moderate to avoid list membership tests, and
this would also then bypass all the miscellaneous holds such as too many
recipients, implicit destination, too big, administrivia, etc.

See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/l4A9> for info on custom handlers.
