Have you noticed any of these particular sections when you've set up a
list config file?
# administrivia [bool] (yes) <resend>
# Look for administrative requests (e.g. subscribe/unsubscribe) and
# forward them to the list maintainer instead of the list.
administrivia = yes
# taboo_body [regexp_array] (undef) <resend>
# If any line of the body matches one of these regexps, then the
# message will be bounced for review.
taboo_body << END
Or this when setting up the majordomo.cf file?
# Common things that people send to the wrong address.
# These are caught in the first 10 lines of the message body
# if 'administrivia' is turned on and the message isn't marked approved.
# The code that catches this should transparently redirect
# majordomo commands to majordomo. That would give the additional
# advantage of not having to add to this silly construct for
# each new majordomo command.
$admin_body = <<'END';
If you still haven't figured it out, set 'administrivia = no', but
strictly at your own risk.
