Hi Bob,

The method that I use for this is add the owners as moderators with
visibility set to "noconceal" and reception mode set to "mail". Add the
un-moderated members as moderators, set the visibility to "conceal" and
the reception mode to "nomail". Finally set the list send mode to
"Moderated (editorkey)".

This solution is not ideal, as it still gives these users moderator
privileges when it probably isn't needed (or wanted), but they shouldn't
get the moderation messages, and the owners (now set as moderators),
will continue to get the moderation notifications. Also, unlike the
"Moderated, even for moderators (editorkeyonly)" option, the owners will
no longer be moderated.

I would still prefer per member moderation settings (similar to
Mailman), but I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I would be
happy to hear of any other techniques.

Subject: [sympa-users] Specific List Moderation Question

I have a need for several moderated lists. Currently there are no
moderators defined for these lists and send is set to moderated even for
the moderators. The list owners do the moderation. The situation I
would like to inquire about is how could I add one or more persons that
could send to these several lists without having the list owners having
to moderate the message.

My understanding is that I may be able to add one or more moderators and
change the send to just moderated. However, doing that would obviously
send all of the messages to the person(s) added as moderator and the
list owners would cease getting the notices of messages to moderate.

The persons sending messages to the list without list owner moderation
are sending out a notice of closing for bad weather or other emergency
message. Therefore, it would be nice to grant them the ability to send
an emergency notice and not be burdened with all of the other day-to-day
messages to moderate.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to change the configuration of a
list to do this?
