This procedure will prevent "Automatic replies" from being posted to a list and cause them to be deleted immediately.1

Turn on Emergency Moderation for a List

When emergency moderation is turned on, all postings to the list are held for moderation instead of being posted to the list.

Use this option if many members are posting to the list and you need to stop additional postings. This may occur if the list is not configured for moderation and members begin replying to earlier posts to the list, resulting in a "spamming-like" effect. This is particularly a problem if there are many members on the list.
