	Go to the "Privacy options..." page for your list.  Now, go down 
to the "Sender filters" sub-page.

	If you want all subscribers to be able to post without 
moderation, then you probably want to make the first radio button on 
this page to "No".  If this is set to "Yes", then by default all new 
subscribers will be moderated until you manually clear their 
moderation bit in the "Membership Management..." section.

	Then, you want to make sure that you have the right settings 
configured for "Action to take when a moderated member posts to the 
list" and "Action to take for postings from non-members for which no 
explicit action is defined".

	Of course, you'll need to make sure that the moderation bits are 
set correctly for the subscribers in the "Membership Management..."
