[Mailman-Users] Scheduled Administrative Option

My large list (40,000 names) is announcement only and all posts are held (to
prevent the possibility of a spammer hijacking the list). So the "Schedule"
option is the only one that would work. Simply scheduling when I send the
post would not resolve the problem.

May you be filled with goodness, peace, and joy.

Remember that current structure of mailman is not good at arbitrary
scheduling.  You may have to run a scheduling script every hour or so.
It would be easier to use your PC (Windows or Linux) to send a message in a
scheduled time.  May be you can send a message with an "Approved" 
header and a "confirm" command with the confirmation string in the hold
