Probably nobody else has seen the management interface, so no idea
what ban list refers to with respect to mail delivery from the list.
But regarding Mailman's "privacy options" category:
If you're referring to the subscription banlist, then indeed it is not
working as that only tells mailman to never subscribe that address.

You would have to add the address to the "Sender Filters", add it to
the list of non-member addresses that will automatically be discarded.

For more filtering, use the "Spam filters" option - this is limited to
filter against message headers though.

This would be pointless.

Because the only reason to host the list on fdo and not on tdf servers
was the ability to have it without the reply-to mangling, having
people use "reply all".
That way it's easy for non-subscribers to post something and still
receive answers to that specific thread.

I rather use a better client-side spam-filter...
