In build 2942 we added an Approve feature for moderated mailing lists in the Remote Console.

Moderated Mailing Lists

Mailing lists that have a moderator assigned are considered moderated. However, only subscribers with the Moderated flag are subject to this measure. (This flag can be assigned to Guest subscribers as well as set automatically on New Subscribers.) Messages from moderated subscribers are redirected to the moderator's mailbox instead of being automatically distributed to other subscribers.

Now you can use the Approve action on messages in that mailbox. The action is visible for all messages, but is only effective if the message contains the X-Moderated-For message header, identifying a valid local mailing list.

When this action is selected, the selected messages will be re-submitted to the respective mailing lists with the Sender: field set to the moderator, allowing the messages to pass moderation and be distributed.
