Well, of course "we" all do ...
I seem to have a similar problem -I mean, being the only one responding
to my own mails. In contrast to you, I didn't find an answer - so I take the
liberty to repost my original question:

After having been asked to approve a mail send to a list, I go to the
proposed webpage, enter my admin-pwd, klick on the approve button, submit the
page - to no effect. 
The mail this lingers around, waiting to be approved. I am being asked for
my pwd again, and could move around in that circle endlessly...
If I ask my colleage (and webmaster, hence supposedly working with other rigths)
it works. 

What am i missing ? (i will write again as I, as soon as my "approve" rights have
grown accordingly :-))
