It works fine for my webpages I set up such as
http://cibolo.us/mailman/listinfo/open_electroporator that URl is rewritten and permenanetly directed to below:

I suppose it is TLS. I followed very recent guides to set it up.
Yes, as far as behind nginx it is TLS:
# SSL Settings
ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; # Dropping SSLv3, ref: POODLE
# Diffie-Hellman parameter for DHE ciphersuites, recommended 2048 bits
Only admin of pending moderation is affected.
Maybe I have an operator error -- I'll check for setting the moderator name and password -- it may be blank or
from an older version of mailman that this installation was migrated from...
fix_url has been run on the affected list. That was after some restoring of data dirs and
there could be permissions problems...so maybe I still need to run fix_url again...
Thanks for the suggestions.
