I have looked up the archives and the FAQ but perhaps I dont even know what
I am looking for.
I have recently set up a mailing list. I think I have set up the list for
not holding up any member's posting for admin approval. But each time there
is a posting, it gets held up and I get a message saying "message awaiting
approval" and it wont go through until I approve of it. At first I thought
it was because messages were coming in with html in them -- so I sent a
message in plain text format to test but even that got held up. Where should
I look? Here are the main options which I think are relevant as I have set
them. Any suggestions in this regard will be greatly appreciated:
(Administrivia filter) Check postings and intercept ones that seem to be
administrative requests? YES
Emergency moderation of all traffic to the list - No.
Maximum length in kilobytes (KB) of a message body. Set to 40 KB.
Should messages from this mailing list include the RFC 2369 (i.e. List-*)
headers? (Yes is highly recommended) Set to NO.
Set everyone's moderation bit, including those members not currently visible
By default, should new list member postings be moderated? NO
Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action is
I have left spam filter rule #1 blank. action : defer.
Legacy anti spam filters: I have not changed anything in this.
# Lines that *start* with a '#' are comments.
to: friend at public.com
from: list at listme.com
Filter rules to match against the headers of a message. HOLD
Should Mailman filter the content of list traffic according to the settings
Remove message attachments that don't have a matching content type. Leave
this field blank to skip this filter test:
Remove message attachments that have a matching filename extension:
Should Mailman collapse multipart/alternative to its first part content?
Should Mailman convert text/html parts to plain text? This conversion
happens after MIME attachments have been stripped. YES
Action to take when a message matches the content filtering rules: Forward
to list owner.
