The addresses need to be in the format
"member name in quotes" <email_address at domain.tld>
See <http://wiki.list.org/x/YoA9> for other formats. The quotes around
the name above are only required if the name contains non alphanumeric
John Doe <jdoe at example.com>
is OK, but
"Jane Q. Doe" <jdoe at example.com>
needs to be quoted.

You do the former by setting Privacy options... -> Sender filters ->
default_member_moderation to Yes.
There is no automatic (after n posts) way to clear the mod flag, but
when the moderator goes to the admindb page to approve a post from a
moderated member, there is a checkbox that the moderator can use to
clear the mod flag of the member whose post is being approved.
