See the script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/list_requests>.

Also, if you set admin_immed_notify to yes, the notice to the admin has
three MIME parts. part 1 is the held post notice; part 2 is the held
post itself, and part 3 is another message/rfc822 part which can be
'replied' to by email. If you simply reply to this message, to original
post will be discarded, but if you include an 'Approved: password'
header (or first body line pseudo header) in the reply, the post will be
accepted. In the header, password is the list admin or moderator
password or the (new in 2.1.15) poster password.

See the Passwords section of the admin interface, although you'll
probably not be able to set the poster password for the same reason you
can't approve posts, but you can always set it with config_list with input

post_password = 'desired_pw_value'
