[Mailman-Users] Approving mails

I've checked the FAQ's and can't see (probably because "wood" and 
"trees" springs to mind) how to approve mails without having to go to 
the web to do it. The message I get telling me there's a mail awaiting 
approval states:

"If you reply to this message, keeping the Subject: header intact,
Mailman will discard the held message.  Do this if the message is
spam.  If you reply to this message and include an Approved: header
with the list password in it, the message will be approved for posting
to the list.  The Approved: header can also appear in the first line
of the body of the reply."

If I click "reply" and as the first line of the mail I put "Approved: (list password)" (without the quotes, and with a space after the colon, and without the password in brackets), I get a mail back that shows just that - not the message hitting the list. If I don't put the password in, I get the same thing. I'm obviously overlooking something very simple; could somebody please point me in the right direction.
