So these are messages that were originally held (as administrivia or ?) and "approved" by a moderator. When a message is held, the message itself is placed in a heldmsg-listname-nnn.ext file in mailman's data/ directory. (.ext is normally .pck unless mm_cfg.HOLD_MESSAGES_AS_PICKLES is set False in which case it is .txt). An entry is placed in the list's request.pck file which is the basis for the moderator listing in the admindb interface, and an entry is placed in the lists pending.pck file used to process 'confirm' actions. When such a message is approved, the heldmsg file is removed, the message is marked in its metadata as approved and it is requeued in the in/ queue for processing by the rest of the pipeline. This and logging the approval in the vette log occur immediately, i.e. before the admindb page refreshes). Thus, the approved message is either in the in/ queue or the out/ queue or it's been delivered to the MTA. -- Mark Sapiro <m...@msapiro.net> The highway is for gamblers, San Francisco Bay Area, California better use your sense - B.
