You probably have in your access.db:
This is treated a white-list entry in the milter. To do what you want,
you'll probably need to by-pass the general white-list entry with:
Depending on how the mailing list messages are introduced into the mail
system, the messages that exceed the limit should be queued for later
retries by sendmail. I can't say with any certainty, since I've never
used Mailman nor tried this case since the common assumption is to
always white list internal messages of the host.
I think to answer better requires further clarification of how your mail
system is setup and the flow of mail through it. Do you have several
systems feeding the list server? Or is all-in-one system. The former
should be easy to handle, while the latter is unclear.
