Many things show up as "mail from non-member" which contain nothing but a
forbidden attachment. Can we run through the content filter BEFORE testing
for membership so that this cr*p just gets discarded?

Thanks,

    You can't change the order in which these operations are
    performed. However, you can configure attachment stripping so that
    any message which does not meet your criteria will automatically be
    discarded or rejected, as opposed to being forwarded to the list
    owner.

    You can change the order of the handlers in the GLOBAL_PIPELINE in your
    mm_cfg.py file.

    Rather than doing that, you could change the "Sender filters" page's
    generic_nonmember_action to simply discard messages from non-members.
