I did not send it to him only because I assumed that there are some
improvement options that do not rely on the moderator only (mailserver).

I believe there are more options than that.


You could
* whitelist all email addresses that are subscribed to any lists.tpo list
* tell mailman about spam headers (if you have any)
* moderate the rest that never send a valid email to the list

From looking at the past emails I expect that the average
moderated/delayed valid email will be <=1 per month while ~15 spam
emails per month would not reach the list.
