This is in list-owner-info:
2) Edit the file to insert a line that says "Approved: password" (where
"password" is the password for your list) at the top, before the
original message, with absolutely no intervening space:
And there's an example as well.

This is not necessary and is ill-advised; removing References: and
In-Reply-To: removes very useful info used to reconstruct threads. Of
course, you really can put anything you want in the headers as long as
they're legal if that makes you happy, but it certainly doesn't help
anything to remove them.
JHG> Yes, if you follow its (unwritten) rules... not even in the FAQ,
The rules are plainly written in list-owner-info. At least, I tried to
make them plain; I included examples. The user's problem in this case is
that they claim to be following the directions properly and still are
experiencing failures. This is troubling to me, and I'd like to get to the
bottom of it.
