Ah, of course, I completely forgot about that!  Yes, I had applied this
patch as you recommended when I installed the old version back in 2007:


You mentioned at the time that the functionality provided by the patch
(to auto-allow subscribers from certain domains, while everyone else
still requires approval) will be provided in a future release:


However I can't find the option in the current Mailman release.  Do you
know if it has been added or can I apply this patch again?

Many thanks,
