Yes. please check the vette log.

Regarding the other issues, the contents of the header (following
Approved:) must be exactly the list admin or moderator password. There
may be 0 or more spaces between Approved: and the password, but there
must be no characters and no trailing spaces after the password.

If the list's Privacy options->Sender
filters->default_member_moderation is Yes, new members should be
moderated. Note that this is a list attribute, not the
Defaults.py/mm_cfg.py setting DEFAULT_DEFAULT_MEMBER_MODERATION which
only sets the default for a new list. I don't see in the code how a
new member can avoid having their mod bit set to the Privacy
options->Sender filters->default_member_moderation setting.
