[Mailman-Users] newbie: subscribers without moderation

Hi, thanks again

I´ve put Approved: <password> as the first line of the message body.
The result is the same that before.
The user is subscribed, but the list admin must accept him

That´s what I don´t like, I don´t want the list admin has to go to
accept subscribed users, I want it done automatically

I´ve tested about command line, unfortunely, my host doesn´t give me
permissions to execut files on mailmam directory
