You need the confirmation token which is only included in the individual
notices you receive if the list's admin_immed_notify is Yes.
If you set this, you will receive a three part message from Mailman with
each held message. The first part is the held notice, the second is the
held message itself and the third is a message/rfc822 part From: the
list-request address with Subject: confirm <token>. The body of that
third part says:
If you reply to this message, keeping the Subject: header intact,
Mailman will discard the held message. Do this if the message is
spam. If you reply to this message and include an Approved: header
with the list password in it, the message will be approved for posting
to the list. The Approved: header can also appear in the first line
of the body of the reply.
The important things are:
1) "reply to this message" means the message/rfc822 part, not the outer
message. I.e. the reply goes To: the list-request address with Subject:
confirm <token> (possibly with Re: added). Actually it can be any
message To: the list-request address with Subject: confirm <token>.
2) if you want to accept rather than discard the message, you must include
as an actual header or the first body line of the reply where password
is the list admin or moderator password.
