I now have set these settings:

Privacy Options > Subscription rules > Sender filters:
- default_member_moderation: Yes (was already set)
- member_moderation_action: Discard (was: Hold)
- member_moderation_notice:
"Sorry. This is a moderated mailing list. You don't have write access here."
(without quotation marks)

Privacy Options > Subscription rules > Spam filters:
- header_filter_rules:
Spam Filter Regexp:
"From: Ulf Dunkel <dunkel at calamus.net>" (without quotation marks) *)
Action: Hold

*) I firstly had to check which exact header phrase was used from my
email client.

This seems to be the setting that works for me.
