This site has some ideas. I'm not sure how applicable they are to GNA:

I couldn't find any hooks in mailman for passing rejected mail to an external program though. Might be worth filing a feature request?

That's a nice idea but I'm not aware of any tweaking between mailman and spamassassin that would do this. Any insights?

Is it possible for mails that are rejected by the mailing list to be automatically passed to spamassassin for learning that they are spam. We get a lot of identical spam emails to our lists and if the first couple had been flagged as spam and subsequent ones automatically rejected then this would be much less of a problem. With 30 spam emails a day needing administrative attention it's easy to lose the occasional email that is important.
