      Several options, depending on what you want:

On http://yoursite.tld/mailman/admin/<listname>/general you will find 
"Emergency moderation of all list traffic" which will moderate EVERYONE.

On http://yoursite.tld/mailman/admin/<listname>/members at the bottom of 
the page you will find "Set everyone's moderation bit, including those 
members not currently visible".  Set to On and click set.  Then unmoderated 
anyone you want mail to be accepted from.

On http://yoursite.tldmailman/admin/<listname>/privacy/sender you will find 
"By default, should new list member postings be moderated? "

>Also how do you turn off the "Create new List" via webpage ?

      Given that it requires the list admin password, why would you need to 
turn it off?  If it really bothers you hack the code to kill it.

      Funny, last week a there were complaints that Mailman lacked 
important features.
