Hmmm... Ok, I think then, that I'm simply trying to use it in a way that
I was using it in the sense that anyone who knew the password was able
to post to the list, simply by *manually* entering the 'Approved:' line
as the first line in his post. This fits our situation well, hence my
Basically, we want to have a group of moderators, who may not really
be associated with each other in any way, have the ability to approve
a request to a list. The paradigm of having a message bounce and go to
a (single) moderator for approval doesn't work well in this situation.
For instance, say we have a list called 'allemp' that includes all (>500)
employees. We want people at the department manager level to be able to
approve posts to the list (or post to the list themselves without getting
approval), so we can't rely on a single moderator...
