That's generally right.

:shoul have a file .majordomo in a directory /home/majordom in his computer.
:(Am I right??)
Not exactly -- .majordomo should reside in the user's home directory. You
can then pipe bounced messages through the approve script. (In pine, for
example, I have the pipe command enabled, and simply pipe bounced email to
the approve script.)
:another doubt: when you use approve you write "approve file " . Where is
:the password then??
When you pipe to the approve script, the password is in the .majordomo
Because many list owners can't use the approve script (because they're on
an inferior operating system perhaps) there's an alternative, which is to
add the "Approved: list_password" header to the top of the bounced message
and send it back to the list.
