Even though only the moderator can post to the list, anyone should be 
able to send an email to <listname-join at list.host.com> to subscribe 
to the mailing list. In the case of a web form with a 'join our 
mailing list' tickbox, when the tickbox is selected it could generate 
an email with the from address of the new subscriber and send it to 
<listname-join at list.host.com>. This should cover both cases (allowing 
users to join through email, and joining through a web form) without 
allowing any other than the moderator to post.
