[Mailman-Users] list-owner getting spammed

I was having this happen, but in my case there was a very easy way to 
get rid of it. Whoever set up that spam mailing list made a very big 
mistake. They chose to send their spam to the owner address *and* the 
address for posting to the list! Normally there is absolutely no valid 
reason for sending the same message to those two particular recipients, 
so I installed Milter-Greylist and set it up to block those messages at 
the SMTP level. Hasn't stopped the spammers, but at least my system 
doesn't have to process the spam.

If something like this is going on in your case, that might be an 
option. If not, and if the spam has nothing in common, as far as I know 
there's nothing Mailman can do in this situation, you'll need to employ 
spam filtering before Mailman sees the mail.
