[Mailman-Users] Config for moderator to edit posts in admindb

Yes.  Mailman is open source software and is very easy to modify.  Someone
has already made a patch that does exactly that (allows the admin to
view/edit the copy of the message, and then replaces the original message
with the copy).

The original message is in ~mailman/held/..
Each message is stored in a file of the form: heldmsg-<list_name>-xxxx

If you don't want to hack Mailman, you can let your admins edit the files
directly.  You can link this directory to a common access point and give
your admins rights to it (or you can mount it via samba...).  Then your
admins can easily edit the messages directly.
