We implement junk-domain filtering ahead of Mailman. No reason to let a 
message get any further in your server than it has to. We use iptables 
to block connections from IP address ranges in countries where we know 
we have no users, and then a minimal spamassassin installation to filter 
top level domains and other 100% junk senders. This makes Mailman's job 
a lot easier.
