Take a look at the FAQ. There is one written about just how to setup an
"announce only list".  Basically you go to the membership section of the
Web-admin and set all the users Modify bit to on, then you go to
selected users (like your admins) and turn their modify bit off - or
leave them all on and force the admins to approve any and all messages
(so that the messages can't be spoofed by someone).
