restrict_post       =   enewsletter.senders

while enewsletter.senders (in the lists dir with permissions -rw-rw-r-- owned by majordomo:majordomo contains my email addresses in one line delimited by a colon (:).

Like any other Majordomo <listname> file, the one specified in restrict_post should contain one e-mail address per line. The phrase "only addresses listed in these files (colon or space separated) can post to the mailing list" is a bit ambiguous. It actually refers to multiple filenames in the restrict_post directive, not to the contents of the file(s). For example:


restrict_post       =   enewsletter:enewsletter.senders

would allow posting by anyone subscribed to the enewsletter list as well as by anyone (presumably non-subscribers) listed in the enewsletter.senders file.
