Here is how the moderator stuff works...

I sent the following message to experimental@gamerz.net (a moderated list with the moderator password set to "foobar")

It bounced to rrognlie@gamerz.net (as moderator of the list) for approval...

I then replied to the message and changed the To address from experimental-owner@gamerz.net to experimental@gamerz.net and created a line of 'X-Approval: foobar' as the *FIRST* line of the message.  "foobar" was the Moderator Password specified in the GUI...

Once that was done, eSquire accepted the message as approved, and forwarded it on to the list...
