Hmm, for (2) I think you have to use for me, then.  Most of my e-mail addresses
(including are not associated with an SMTP server, if I get your drift.

Where do we learn how to send the commands involved in (2).

If you want to experiment on how strong that condition is, register both of those addresses
above, and I'll see if only one of them works.

I assume it is obvious when the list software does not recognize a moderator sending in the
required manner.

Sorry, I didn't mean to come off as being territorial on that.

I'd also like to to confirm email addresses before sending in the request.


There are two kinds of moderation duties that come up.

1) Passing or rejecting posts from non-subscribers.   These require
that you either do a response to the email or click the embedded link
in the moderation note. Since the authentication tokens are embedded
in the moderation note, it doesn't really matter what email address
you use to deal with this.

2) Dealing with repetitive out-of-the-office notices, people who
cannot figure out how to unsubscribe, spammers, etc.    This is done
by sending email commands from your moderator address.  Sending from
another address or spoofing the moderator address won't cut it.  You
really need to be sending from an SMTP server associated with your
address.  At least that has been my experience.

So if a moderator wants to use a different address for moderation,
especially considering the requirements for 2) above, please let me
