[Mailman-Users] FW: No One Can Post a Message but the Server

Thanks Patrick!

It appears this password is striped from the email header before it is sent
out.  This is important as the list password would be disclosed to everyone!

Should the <list password> be the administrator for the list?  This is the
way it is setup for the server early Tuesday morning.  I hope it is correct.

Thanks again!  Greg

Just set:
Privacy -> Sender Filters -> default_member_moderation to Yes
Privacy -> Sender Filters -> member_moderation_action to Discard
Privacy -> Sender Filters -> generic_nonmember_action to Discard
Membership Management -> Set Everyone's Moderation Bit

...And then either (a) set the sender for the bash script to
unmoderated, or (b) (better idea) code the bash script to include the
'Approved: <list password>' as the first line or as a header.
