Mailman version 2.1.4 supports this (I don't know if earlier versions
do too). You just set the flag to say members only may post and to
hold non member postings. 

When the moderators handle the held messages they will be given the
option to approve, discard, bounce etc the message as well as to
optionally set a permanent action for that source email address (
approve, discard, bounce, etc).

Under the privacy option (sender filters) you can also manually list
email addresses for which postings will automatically be approved.
