Something like http://www.example.com/mailman/admindb/listname or via
the "Tend to pending moderator requests" link on the admin pages.

Normally, you would receive one message "From:
listname-owner at example.com" with "Subject: listname post from userA
requires approval". The body of this message is something like

As list administrator, your authorization is requested for the
following mailing list posting:

    List:    groupZ
    From:    userA
    Subject: ...
    Reason:  ...

At your convenience, visit:


to approve or deny the request.

and the original post is attached, and a confirmation message you can
reply to is attached.

This would appear to be the second of your three messages. Can you give
me similar detail about the others. It appears that there may be some
bouncing or MTA misdirection going on.
