Looks like Mailman 2.0.x

# - If member_posting_only == no, then what happens depends on the
#   value of the posters attribute:
#    o If posters was empty, then anybody can post without their
#      message being held for approval
#    o If posters was non-empty, then /only/ those addresses could post
#      without approval, i.e. members not on posters would have their
#      messages held for approval.

It looks like you have addresses in 'posters' and you either have to
remove them or if your forward always looks like it comes from a fixed
address, add that one to the list.
