I just wonder about the mechanism that majordomo actually uses.
Does the 'moderate' flag override the 'restrict_post" parameter?
I set 'restrict_post' to a file containing one address allowed to post to
the list - say it's "email@example.com". BTW "firstname.lastname@example.org" is also the
I then set the 'moderate=yes'. What I supposed to get was that the
list would be both moderated and with restricted posting - so that ONLY
the address from 'restrict_post' could send to the list and also ONLY he
could moderate the list.
However, it's possible that someone else - say "email@example.com" sends a
posting with the required "Approved: password" line in the message body's
It seems that if you know the password, you can do "all" with the list,
without being "allowed" to do so...
Which settings would be then best if I only want the list to be an
'agent' sending mail to all the subscribed addresses? One person only
allowed to actually post to the list. Is moderation (and therefore a
approval password) needed so that no one can pretend to be
"firstname.lastname@example.org" and send a message to all on the list?
Thanks in advance,
