I don't understand. First of all, why not just let Mailman's bounce
processing take care of removing bouncing members?

But, in any case, removing members should have nothing to do with
message approval, so I don't understand what the problem is. Can you
give more specific detail?

If you mean there are no messages in the admindb interface, then
perhaps there have been no posts.

If you mean you haven't been getting notices of messages as they are
held, this is expected. Individual notices are not sent for
'emergency' holds.

Nor can I from the information you provided. Please try to provide more
specific detail about the actual problem, although it seems that this
may be something that will have to be addressed by the admins of the
Mailman installation.
