	It sounds to me like you've configured the list to reject 
postings from users who are designated as "moderated".

	In the web administration interface for your list, go to "Privacy 
options...", then "Sender filters".  Look at the second item on the 
list, which has the description "Action to take when a moderated 
member posts to the  list. (Details for member_moderation_action)".

	I'd be willing to bet that you've set the list to "Reject" 
instead of "Hold".
