No. The settings 'everyone moderated' and 'reply to address' are not
what's causing this. What causes it is you have set
member_moderated_action to Reject, so posts from a moderated member
are rejected with the member_moderated_notice you've specified.

If this is the behavior you want, set member_moderated_action to Hold.
