	Let me add my humble voice to endorse Mr Mahesh's ideas.  I'd 
	like to be able to approve/disapprove member joining, and 
	unknown people posting, as well.

I hope there is a wish list that mailman developers will keep in mind,
as they further improve/enhance.  I would hope the goal would be
that admins, as well as users, could do everything by E-mail as well
as by web interface.

The advantages of this would be great for people with dialup access, like
me.  Also great for people in developing countries, with slow links, for
whom E-mail works better than e.g. the loading of a web page.

Best wishes,
