Aah, OK that worked.  Thanks.

Having never posted to a moderated group, I am unsure how this
works in practice.

If someone wants to post to a moderated group, their post
actually gets mailed to a moderator.  Then the moderated replies
to the person and says "include Approved:
moderator@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx in the headers of your post and repost

Or does the moderator do the reposting with the appropriate

Couldn't posters just forge the Approved: header having read the
moderator's email address on other posts?

I apologise if we're getting off-topic here.
