One of my list moderators has the same problem. She uses Pine too, and
Pine doesn't allow for piping of messages through the "approval" script.
She can't save the message and then invoke the approval program on the
file, either, because she's on some weird, distributed system that's not
Unix compatible and handles remailed messages in a really weird manner
(it's complicated but let's just say it's through Carnegie Mellon U. and
that should suffice! :-)
Anyway, here's how she approves messages manually:
Just save the message, trim the Received headers, add an "approved"
line as the very first line, and send it to the *list* itself.
Yes, that's to *list* and not to majordomo. This is how you approve a
message, manually, to go to the list. Just remember that *commands* go
to *majordomo*, whereas *messages* go to the *list* and you'll be fine.
The message would start like this (message, itself, borrowed from the
bass mailing list :-)

Subject: Help with 1259 subs; I want to build BIG speakers!
Boy, I sure wish I had some test equipment for this speaker building stuff.
All I have is my ears and a RS SPL meter and some test tones from the
Stereophile disk. Anyway I did some nearfield measurements (2" off of the
dust cap at 110 db) on the 1259 subs and hey, they got no deep bass. The
frequency sweeps are given below:

I'm at lunch all day. :-)
