[Mailman-Users] Post approval

I had this happen to me several times in the past few months.  The list 
admin in each case always swore that he/she had not discarded the message.

So, I took the original message (attached to your confirmation message) 
and saved it to disk.  Then put that file on the Mailman server and used 
~mailman/bin/inject to directly inject it into the Mailman queue and 
then quickly approve via the web.

Hope this helps.
