The first section of the UPGRADING file reads:
A NOTE ABOUT MODERATION
When you upgrade from Mailman 2.0.x to Mailman 2.1, you should
double check that your moderation and privacy options are still
set the way you want them. The Mailman options dealing with
moderation and privacy have changed significantly, to make them
easier to understand and control. Ever effort was taken to
translate the old configuration variables to the new configuration
variables, but because the old semantics were so complex, it is
possible your settings may not have been correctly translated.
Check especially the values for (in Privacy -> Sender Filters)
default_member_moderation, generic_nonmember_action, and
accept_these_nonmembers. Check also the moderation flag on member
accounts in the Membership Management screen.
I suspect to resolve your latter problem you need to go to the
Membership Management screen, find the part at the bottom that reads
"Set everyone's moderation bit, including those members not currently
visible", click "On", and click "Set".
