[Mailman-Users] moderation bit off on explicitly selected users

we are using mailman 2.1.5 with Postfix. On our announce-only list we have subscribed all of our employees. This list is fully moderated, so when someone posts, the message waits for approving. That's fine. Now I need to have some users (3 mail addresses) of the subscribes, that can post to the list without moderation and waiting for approving from the moderator. Where can I specify these adresses? I do not use the mailman's web interface.

According to the posts I have found on google, this should be done by modifying the moderation bit on each user, but I cannot find where it could be done in the config file? The config file is the one obtained from the ./config_list -o list.conf MyList.
When I specify this in

     owner = ['adr1 at ourdomain.cz', 'adr2 at ourdomain.cz', 'adr3 at ourdomain.cz']
     moderator = ['adr1 at ourdomain.cz', 'adr2 at ourdomain.cz', 'adr3 at ourdomain.cz']

it does not help, the message from adr1 at ourdomain.cz waits for approving.

I set up this further settings:
default_member_moderation = True
member_moderation_action = 0
generic_nonmember_action = 3

I tried to setup the config like here http://www.modwest.com/help/kb13-195.html, but I think this is the case I have now - any message that came to the list is moderated, without exceptions. But I want these exceptions - some people can post without moderation.

Can anyone help me? If you want to know any other options I have in the config, let me know please.

Many thanks, Tomas
