[Mailman-Users] Moderating Users

I understand that the individual user setting for moderation is there in
membership management.  The problem is that any new user that joins the
list isn't moderated by default.

The line:
 Set everyone's moderation bit, including those members not currently
visible: No/Yes and the button Set is there.  If I click on Yes and
select set it moderates every user. But as soon as another user joins
the list its not setting them as modrated..

Also, another question, IF I have a user in the moderator section on the
general settings, does that overide if that user is also a member and
their bit is set to moderated?

I was running 2.1.2 on my other server but when I moved it I rebuilt the
whole system.  Before the rebuild I didn't have this problem.

Just trying to get it secure is all.

Thanks for the help

It's under Membership Management in the Web-Admin.  You can now moderate
individuals or the whole list - but because it is now a function of the
individual members that flag is under Membership Management.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
