It means that only posts approved by the list-owner or administrator, are
sent to the list.

Go to http://<your.mailman.host.domain>/mailman/admin/<listname>/privacy
(parts in angle brakets <> must be substituted for your real data)

Must posts be approved by an administrator? is set to Yes

If so, set it to No and give it a try.
