Yes, the Approved: line with the password gets stripped from the mail
if and ONLY if it meets one of two criteria.
1. It is the very first line in the body of the e-mail, there can be
no other lines before it.
2. It is used as a header (I think this is really the best approach
if you can do it, I am certain this can be done in Python, Perl and
PHP, not so sure, about a bash script).

I believe the moderator password will work too. I am sure somebody
will correct me if I am wrong. If so, you ought to use it because if
it somehow becomes disclosed accidentally, there is much less
potential for damage by malicious people than with the administrator password.
