I'm using majordomo. Is there a way to set up a list so
that messages from first-time/new subscribers would need to go
through the list-owner for a set number of postings? Say... after
three postings, the new subscriber would automatically be removed
from some type of probationary list (sends messages from new subscriber
to list-owner for approval) to prevent spammers from signing up for
the purpose of getting their one-time spam through?
Thanks for any help/advice.
Here's suggestions from someone who doesn't know much... If there
isn't a way in Majordomo, you could hack up a procmail filter to
receive the incoming mail, and look for people on a probation list.
If it's a match, send to the approval address, else pass it on to
majordomo in the usual way. Of course, this is essentially
duplicating majordomo's job.
Another way that might be better is to maintain two lists, one of
which is a gateway or exploder that folks sign up to, and after a
while you move them to the other, real list. This has certain
administrative complexities I think.
