Yes, you can set it up int he list config so that only people in a certain
file can post... I know you can do this in 1.94.4, I don't have 1.94.3
here is the line from the config file:
# restrict_post [restrict_post] (undef) <resend>
# If defined, only addresses listed in these files (colon or space
# separated) can post to the mailing list. By default, these files
# are relative to the lists directory. These files are alsochecked
# when get_access, index_access, info_access, intro_access,
# which_access, or who_access is set to 'list'. This is lessuseful
# than it seems it should be since there is no way to create these
# files if you do not have access to the machine running resend.
# This mechanism will be replaced in a future version of
restrict_post = test
