I'm sorry if this is a repeated question; but I've spent the last hour 
searching/reading faq's and not finding anything useful.

I'm creating a newsletter mailing list, which I've successfully done - 
now, I am trying to get my billing system to automatically add new 
customers to the mailing list.

The easiest way to do this would be to have my billing system send an 
email to mailman to subscribe the user.

However, I have as of yet been unable to locate any information on how 
to do so.

I've tried using the "Approved:" header with a subscribe command in the 
mail body, following the subscribe command syntax at 
http://www.list.org/mailman-member/node41.html, but the response back 
from mailman is that the commands remain unprocessed.

What is the correct syntax for doing this?
