[Mailman-Users] RE: Question about Mailman feature

I had a question about a particular Mailman feature.

There is an option that states “preserve message for site admin
”  Until
yesterday I was under the impression that this meant the messages in the
pending request queue would remain there untouched.  But I was testing it
out with this option checked and the messages are always deleted from the
pending requests page unless you select the defer option.

When they specify that a copy is kept for the site administrator do they
actually mean that the pending message is deleted from the page but saved
on the machine housing the list messages?  Is this only accessible only by
those with direct access to the hardware it's stored on and not the list

Hopefully you can clarify things for me a bit.  Thank you for your time!
