Are the members really moderated? Is the 'mod' box checked for each
user on the Membership Management...->Membership List pages?

If not, under "Additional Member Tasks" on that page set "Set
everyone's moderation bit, including those members not currently
visible" to 'on' and click 'Set'

Not per se. The list of everyone who can post without moderation is
those members in the membership list whose 'mod' flag is off plus
those non-members whose address is in or matches a pattern in
accept_these_nonmembers plus every non-member if
generic_nonmember_action is 'Accept'.

Also, anyone, member or not, who knows the list's admin or moderator
password can post with an "Approved: password" header.
