The mailman admin email address has no special rights.  Since email 
addresses can be spoofed, this is a "good thing" (tm).  You can however, 
set your list to allow specific email addresses to post without approval.  

Web over to the admin pages for your list and check out the "Privacy 
Options" page:  
   "Addresses of members accepted for posting to this list
    without implicit approval requirement."

Take care -
