Hello Brad,

      I don't want you to get in the middle of something between the
list administrator and myself, however, I just want this issue to be
clear. The list admin still has problems with the way the new mailman
handles mail she sends to her list and gets held for a list admins
approval. Her response to your answer is below highlighted by *****
characters. Just so that I understand this correctly, I believe she is
saying is that if she is a member of her own list, she still has to
approve the message before it goes out. If she was not a member of list
and was in the non-member list of addresses for her list, then the mail
would go out without approval. I don't know this affects MM processing,
if the member address member name has the mod flag set, and she sends
to her list, will it still be held for approval?

***** - the operative words in this case are NON-MEMBER ADDRESSES.
If you want to be a MEMBER so you can receive emails, you cannot be a
NON-MEMBER in this box.  The MEMBER options override the entry in the
NON-MEMBER box.  We tried adding me as a non-member and it still
did not work.  I am a MEMBER in each listserve. *****
