I looked through the archives and found the attached email message.
I am having the same problem.
1. I created a mailing list, posting allowed only from members
2. I signed up two users. Both users received a welcome message
3. I post a message from a user to the list and I get this message:
List: Cystinuria at endeavor.med.nyu.edu
Reason held: Postings from member addresses only.
From: kswenson at netscape.net
Subject: Test Mail #1
The email address mentioned in the message is *exactly* what is in the list.
I did not see a reply to Alan's message in the archives.
Is there any workaround to this problem?
