In mailman 2.1.5, when tending to held posts there is a 'Preserve messages for the site administrator' option under the 'Action to take on all these held messages.' If Accept, Reject, or Discard is selected the message gets removed from the Administrative requests page. Only if Defer is selected does the message remain there. Am I missing something as to the functionality of the 'Preserve messages for the site administrator' option?
Checking the "Preserve" checkbox means that in addition to taking the selected action (Defer, Accept, Reject, or Discard), save a copy of the message in the SPAM_DIR directory. SPAM_DIR can be set in mm_cfg.py and defaults to the 'spam' directory in VAR_PREFIX.
