If you are running 2.0.x, set 'restrict posting to list members' to 'No' (I

In 2.1.x, the control is under Privacy options->Sender Filters.  Make everyone

Then put the automatic posters into 'accept_these_nonmembers'.  It looks like it 
should actually be called 'accept_these_posters' , since it seems that the 
emails can be members or not.
