    99For starters, it's a good idea to outright discard posts by non-members. That means that if someone sends an email to your list who is not subscribed, it will simply be discarded. The name of the option is:
    1010
    11 "Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action is defined."
     11'''Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action is defined.'''
    1212
    1313You can get to it from your mailman web site:
    1414
    15 !https://lists.mayfirst.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/YOUR-LIST-NAME/privacy/sender
     15{{{https://lists.mayfirst.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/YOUR-LIST-NAME/privacy/sender}}}
    1616
    1717(or you can click Privacy Settings -> Sender Filters).
     
    2121In addition, you can add spam checking to your list. You can tell Mailman to discard or hold any message sent to the list that has been detected as spam by modifying this setting:
    2222
    23 !https://lists.mayfirst.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/YOUR-LIST-NAME/privacy/spam
     23{{{https://lists.mayfirst.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/YOUR-LIST-NAME/privacy/spam}}}
    2424
    2525(or you can click Privacy Settings -> Spam Filters).
     
    2727And adding:
    2828
    29 X-Spam-Flag: YES
     29{{{X-Spam-Flag: YES}}}
    3030
    3131To the Spam Filter Regexp field and then choosing the action to take (I would recommend starting with Hold in order to test it; then, if it seems to be working, changing to discard).
