Thanks for the info. I did what you recommended.
Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action is defined.
(Details for generic_nonmember_action) - I Set to 'Accept'
should messages from non-members, which are automatically discarded, be forwarded to the list moderator?
(Edit forward_auto_discards) - I set to 'No'
But still received this error:
"Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.
The reason it is being held:
Message has implicit destination"
Am I missing something here?

The first thing you need to do is set the default non-member action to accept. (see Privacty Settings/Sender Filters)
If you truly want to let everything through, you will also want to set the maximum message size (in General options) to 0 (i.e. unlimited), and not require the list name to be in the To or Cc field of the message (see
privacty/recipient filters). you may also want to set the max number of
recipients to something high.
These are the sorts of things I did when I set up an a mailing list to act like an Email address for general enquiries.
