That wasn't the problem... I went in and changed my own password, and
still cannot post to the list.  I still get the "Only approved posters
may post without moderator approval." message.

The only way I get Mailman to allow posts without admin approval is to 
open it up for *anyone* to post to it, which is a bad thing, IMO.
