To prevent posting to the list, but you allow anyone on the list
to post, you must taboo the offending user. This still allows
the user to post, but the message is not distributed until the
owner/moderator approves the email. In other words, any taboo
that is matched is sent to the moderator/owner.
Since the message must come from an address in the subscriber
or membership list due to restrict_post settings anyway, just
add that address to the taboo_headers using the following syntax:
First and last front slash "/" enclose the expression.
The "i" modifier at the end ignores the case of the match.
The back slashes "\" escape the character that follows it,
making it a literal value. "@" signs must always be escaped.
