i'm running internal lists for my company on mailman 2.0.4 with python 2.0
under solaris 7.  say that our domain name is example.com.

i'm trying to set things up so that *@example.com can post to the lists but
all other addresses are held for approval as explained here:


teo de hesselle responded, suggesting using a regex:


neither post says exactly which configuration option that regex should go in,
but it seems to me that 'posters' is the correct place.  if i use the

	moderated = 0
	member_posting_only = 1
	posters = ['.*@example\\.com']

and post from jwright at example.com, an address which is not subscribed to the
list, the post is held for approval.

if i change 'posters' to

	posters = ['.*@example\\.com', 'jwright at example.com']

then posts from jwright at example.com go through, so it seems that 'posters' 
doesn't accept regular expressions.

am i tweaking the wrong settings?
