	Yes, it does.  Go to the web admin interface for your list.  Go 
to the "Privacy options..." section.  From there, go down to the 
"Sender filters" sub-page.  The second box down from the top will 
have the description "List of non-member addresses whose postings 
should be automatically accepted."  That's what you want.

	That's setting the individual moderated flag.  You don't want 
that.  See above.

	Make sure that your MUA properly uses the desired sender address 
as both the envelope sender and in the header "From:" and "Sender:" 

	Or, go into your mm_cfg.py file and change what fields you look 
at for determining list membership.  If you don't have explicit 
settings for this, see the examples from Defaults.py, then copy them 
over to mm_cfg.py and change as necessary for your installation.
