Hmm. A mailman mailing list might work for inbound stuff... I know you can
configure it to hold messages and wait for administrator approval before
delivering them. You (or the minor in question) would have to distribute
the mailing list address as the public email address for people to use.
Then sign the real backend email address up as a list member. Anything sent
to the mailing list waits for approval. Once it's approved it gets
delivered to the backend. Outbound delivery would be more tricky.
