Understood regarding the discard. In addition, I understand the intent
of the first message as relating to the held message.  Therefore, should
the user who posted the message expect to receive a confirmation email
once the post is approved for distribution?

> So, was the confirmation expired or already confirmed or what?
It was not expired nor confirmed. When the user clicked on the link for
the first time, they received the error.

>Is the user's delivery currently enabled or not?
I am not sure what this means? Email to the user is enabled. Do you mean
is email to name-of-list-request at list.informs.org not being blocked by a
spam filter?
