[Mailman-Users] Unable to approve messages

Dear All,

We have a mailman system setup a long time ago, it requires approval for 
any messages posted on the mailing list.

Starting recently, the moderator of list no longer able approve newly 
posted message, they are still able to receive the "waiting for 
approval" message, which I suppose means the wrapper script in aliases 
file works.

But after they entered "Approved <mod pw>" in the first line of the 
confirm mail (email command). Nothing would happened, list members would 
not receive posted, nor would the moderator received "Confirmation 
succeeded" message.

I have tried all the method, at first I suspected it was the group 
settings problem. But then I realize if this is the case the "waiting 
for approval" would not have been sent.

The "confirm and approve" email command originally worked, but just 
suddenly stopped working. The Any one have ideas?
