To deal with spam on the lists I moderate I've set the following:
'Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit
action is defined.' set to Discard (default is Hold)
'Should messages from non-members, which are automatically discarded,
be forwarded to the list moderator?' set to No (default is Yes)
Both of these options are at the bottom of the Privacy Options ->
Note that this isn't recommended for all lists, since some lists want
non-members to be able to post. Unfortunately spam is a real pain so
this may be something people are interested in setting on their lists.
This also want catch all spam but does greatly reduce the amount.
