FWIW, the spam that has hit the lists has also failed to trigger
my somewhat draconian spamassassin checks as well.
One of the most effective things I've found on the Mailman
mailing lists I maintain and host is to restrict postings to list
members only. While this does generate some moderation requests
when list members post from addresses other than their subscribed
address, it also catches many spam/phishing messages that don't
cause the spamassassin score to exceed our cutoff score.
