Thank you.

Well, not everyone is a unix expert. I need to use CPanel.

I have list membership set at "Require approval" but once someone has
become a subscriber I want their emails to go to the list without my
getting an email that says...

As list administrator, your authorization is requested for the
following mailing list posting:

    List:    xxxx
    From:    xxxxxx
    Subject: xxxxxxx
    Reason:  Posting to a moderated newsgroup

Does anyone here know how to let subscribers post without getting that
notice please ? Using CPanel.

I am beginning to think that my setting the list to "moderated" means
that even subscribers are moderated. That isn't what I wanted.

If I set the list to un-moderated then will non members be able to
post ? If non members will NOT be able to post then where on 
CPanel can I change things to un-moderated please ?

Regards, John.
