Drop/Discard/Reject mails at SMTP time, before they hit Mailman?
Right, but it seems like James is saying Exim4 isn't doing that.

If the mails are being scored (which was mentioned), then I would be
inclined to deal with those before they're accepted -- let alone
before they get to Exim's handling (routing) for Mailman.

I poked around the MM config for the chicago at python.org mailing list,
but for the life of me couldn't find the setting where it holds
messages with X-Spam-Score with spam or unsure values. (We use
SpamBayes on mail.python.org.) I know it's there somewhere, but I can
never find such nuggets.

I have a couple of ACLS (for check_message): the 'magic' I use is

     condition = ${if >{$spam_score_int}{60}{1}{0}}

(A SpamAssassin score >6)

For drop/discard/reject, maybe see


In my view (but "your mailsystem, your rules"), "high" scored Spam
shouldn't be accepted; so score it, and deal with it at SMTP time;
deal with the others once accepted.
