[Mailman-Users] Ban list - correct regular expression?

I get lots of spam held for moderation from email addresses that begin
Hayley@ . I go to the moderation queue, discard each email address and tick
to ban that address from every subscribing. And to discard anything coming
from that address automatically. It would save me a lot of time if I can
have this happen automatically. But am not entirely sure how.


I've tried adding ^hayley to the list of addresses banned from membership
(subscription rules). And to the List of non-member addresses whose postings
will be automatically discarded (sender filters.)


Is that the right expression? And are those the right places to add it?


I didn't put them in the reject messages list as I thought that might send
an automatic message back saying the message had been rejected. Which would
be evidence ours is a real address and maybe encourage even more spam.


Have I set this up correctly? Any other suggestions?



(And if you're called Hayley and want to join the list - um - tough?!)
