Not sure how you would accomplish this, since postfix is what handles the 
anti-virus/anti-spam processing, before the list software even sees it ... 
and, since not all mail through that system is for the lists, you can't 
just drop all messages not from subscribers ...

the issues, though, aren't with the anti-virus/anti-spam ... somehow, the 
messages seem to be getting 'stuck' within the list software itself, which 
is what I'm trying to trace through ...
