First of all, the fact that the poster is the moderator is irrelevant.
The moderator has no special privileges with respect to posting other
than the fact that he knows a password that could possibly be used in
an Approved: header.
My guess is that the address that Mailman saw the post as coming from
is a non-member and generic_nonmember_action is reject or the address
or a pattern match is in the reject_these_nonmembers list.
It doesn't seem likely from your description, but it is also possible
that the address is moderated and member_moderation_action is reject.
Has the moderator successfully posted before? From the exact same
