[Mailman-Users] messages pending approval

when I send a message to a list that needs to have approval prior to its
being sent out, I do receive a response email telling me that it has arrived
and is waiting approval. Now, does it make sense to conclude that if it can
send me an email this way that it should by all accounts be able to send
email for approval notification as well?

If you are also not receiving the once-per-day notifications, then mailman
is unable to send mail to you as the list administrator.  There could be an
alias in the way, or some other problem.  Step one would seem to be to
verify that you can send a message to the address listed in
   General Options-->The list admin's email address....

Having a role account listed there is fine (and probably better than a
personal address)...having it a role account which aliases (or Exim magic)
send back to Mailman is not (learned the hard way here on a test list).
