Moderate

The moderate command allows you to act upon a moderated message contributed to a mailing list.

The options for the moderate command are to either approve or reject a contributed message to a moderated mailing list.

The syntax of the moderate command is:

    moderate approve moderate-id …
    moderate reject moderate-id …

You can specify more than one Moderate ID on the moderate command line.

If you are a list administrator set to receive moderated message notifications, then you will receive email notifications of each moderated message. The notification message will include the moderate command you need to send back to approve or reject the messages. In addition, if there are any other pending messages, these will also be listed, at the bottom of the notification message, along with commands to approve or reject them.

Example

The following message is an example of a moderated message notification. The beginning of the message explains the purpose of the message, and at what time (if any) the message will be automatically approved. Commands for approving or rejecting this message via email are given. The message in question is then displayed. At the bottom of the email message, the currently pending moderated messages are summarized, and commands for approving or rejecting them in bulk is also given.
