Thanks all for your answers and suggestions!
I got some help and found the parameter I needed to change:
*generic_nonmember_action* (privacy): Action to take for postings from

I'm looking for someone to help me with the config of a mailing-list, to
reactivate the semi-automated spam filter.
I'm one of the admins on the Wikidata mailing-list. A while ago, to
my newsletter to be considered as spam because it
included too many
I changed something in the config of the
mailing-list, I don't remember
exactly what, but it was about not filtering spam for the admins
and sending each single spam email (or emails
from non-registered users)
the ML owners. Since then we end up with tons of
emails in our mailboxes
everyday. I tried to reactivate this "pre-filter" feature, but I can't
remember where it is and how to do it right.
Does anyone have a clue about how to fix this? Thanks in advance :)
