Spam and mailing list

Detailed description
It should be possible to filter quite efficiently spam/real mail.

Here is a simple scheme to do it:
- fetch all email of people subscribed to the forge
- add all these emails to whitelist of all mailing lists
- if a mail arrives and is not a whitelist, redirect the sender to a webpage where you can either login to the forge or respond to a captcha
- if the sender login, propose to add the email used to the list of its forge.ocamlcore.org emails list (to be added)
- if the send answer the captcha propose him to add his email to the general list of emails (to be added also)
- if the mail looks like spam (i.e. run through spamoracle) add it to a queue of spam, to be processed by hand
- if the mail is normal and the sender had not answer for 2 days, warn the list admin.
