	Go to the "Membership List" page under "Membership management..." 
and set the moderation flag to be "on" for all users.  Go to the 
"Sender Filters" page under "Privacy Options..." and turn on default 
moderation for all new users.

	Now, all current and future users will be moderated unless this 
value is cleared by the list administrator.

	On the same "Sender Filters" page, under "Action to take when a 
moderated member posts to the list", set that to be "Reject".  Under 
"List of non-member addresses whose postings should be automatically 
accepted" enter the list of addresses you want to automatically go 
through.  Under "Action to take for postings from non-members for 
which no explicit action is defined", also set that to be "Reject".

	Now, any posts from those specified addresses will go through, 
while everyone else will get a reject.
