This particular message just means that a user tried to post a 
message to one of your lists, and they were not a known subscriber. 
The list in question is set up to moderate posts from 
non-subscribers, and so this message is generated.

As far as this goes, there's nothing wrong with this process.  This

If you want to change this configuration to operate in a different

I hope would be adequately explained in the documentation, the FAQ 
Wizard, etc....
