I believe this is already done.   
I have test sending as a non-member and the list did not get the message.

Some how the spammer are signing up on the list then sending to the list.  

Some how we should make it more difficult for spammers to subscribe to the 
list, while allowing new membership to the list.  That was obvious.

I have said this before.  

Only allow emails to the list that are in the to field to post to the list.  
That should reduce about 60% of the spamming to the list.  Maybe even more.
