Hi Community -
Is there a way to have ezmlm recognize that a message to be posted to a discussion group is from a moderator and thus not require that the message be moderated anyhow?
I've tried to answer this myself without success - have read through the info that I can find on ezmlm - fortunately for my addled brain there was a fairly recent upgrade so I didn't have to go back too far
The situation is that I've set up a moderated subscription and moderated message discussion group using the CNC - so far I'm the only one in it (with a couple email addresses) fortunately - it works fine except that the documentation wasn't kidding when it said "all" messages would require confirmation -- even those from a moderator, so a moderator gets to moderate their own messages? -- I understand this maybe is in case someone forged the moderator's address, but in practice, it's pretty awkward, especially since the original plan was to have several moderators --
the purpose of the group is to allow some ladies to coordinate attendance in a walk and/or talk group, there are a couple regulars, MDs who would are busy and would prefer to know if no one is going to show up, which sometimes happens when the sun in out in Puget Sound
and I'm trying to make their lives a little easier
so I was hoping to make the 4 or so core members of the group moderators so they could send messages quickly and between all of us, we could respond quickly when any of the occasional members also responded - but if every single moderator's message has to be approved also, and thus gets cc's to the core, ieeee --
thanks in advance for any help - Diane
