Could someone explain it to me?

First, let me explain that I'm moving from majordomo to mailman and I
*really* appreciate this software.  My compliments to the authors and
contributors!  The installation process was so smooth and the software runs
to well I can't tell you what a relief it is!

Now the problem:  I have 'Restrict posting privilege to list members?' set
to "yes" yet I constantly get messages sent for manual approval even when
the person is on the mailing list.

If there a process I should follow to diagnose this situation?

Thanks in advance,

P.S.  I'm runing mailman-1.1 on Red Hat Linux 6.1.
