Okay, please be easy on me 'cause I'm really a newbe at this...

I've been running my first mail list with version 2.0.8 for about 8 months
and I'm having a hard time understanding the proper privacy settings.

Here's the way I need to have my list set up:

I only want to give a few people posting privileges to my list WITHOUT the
messages being held for approval.  I would like some of these addresses to
be able to post without approval who are NOT subscribers to my list.

I want the rest of the list subscribers to be able to post, but I DO want
their posts to be held for approval.

Could someone please tell me if what I'm trying to do is possible and if so
what the proper combination of settings would be in the General Posting
Filter section under the Privacy Settings in the Administrative Interface?

    - Must posts be approved by an administrator?

    - Restrict posting privilege to list members?

    - And of course I understand that I will need to list the specific
e-mail addresses in the "Addresses of members accepted for posting to this
list without implicit approval requirement" field.

Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
