Here's one (in perl) that works well:

ooh. using procmail. I hadn't thought of that. Very nice. Thanks!

I like this; in fact, I'd go a bit further. include the message, and 
an approval cookie. The admin can then e-mail back the approval 
cookie (and optionally a modified version of the message), or the 
cookie back with a reject code. that way, the moderation (with 
message cleanup) could be done purely via e-mail, which (IMHO) isn't 
as easy as web, but sometimes more convenient, or at least faster. 
Not everyone has browsers available 100% of the time, although we're 
getting closer.
