I'm guessing that by "poster privileges" you mean a subscriber who is
not moderated on an otherwise moderated list. Is that correct?

I don't know what's happening. What does the approval e-mail say is the
reason the post is held? Is there another moderator or administrator
who might be "quicker" than you at approving the messages?
