That's right...

Also right, but we have to make a script to make the helpdesk manage a
"list or textfile" with addresses wich can mail to a list. Some people
are member of such a list, and some aren't.. so we have 2 places in the
system where we have to work.
Accept from non members (non member)
Moderation flag (member)
this is possible, but I was wondering if it's possible to have 1 place
for such addresses.

It would make life easier....:-)

Greetings... and thank you for the help...
