MAILMAN 2 What I got from the Mailman 2 Wiki is "How to restrict the list so only authorized persons can post (moderation). If there is an option like that in Mailman 3 I want that.
There is, but you can't do it the best way. See below.
SUMMARY I want to be able to reply personally to the user if necessary without his or her message going to the list. So something like moderation.
So let me take a guess:
Default action to take when a non-member posts to the list AND Default action to take when a member posts to the list
should be set to HOLD FOR MODERATION?
That will work and is probably what you want anyway. Your own posts will also be held, but you can just accept them.
Alternatively, you could set your own Moderation setting to Accept or Default Processing so your posts won't be held, but don't do that as it allows anyone to post by spoofing your address in From:, Sender: or Reply-To: or the envelope sender.
The best way to post without the post being held is pre-approval with an
header, where <password> is the list's moderator_password, but you can't set that in postorius so it won't work for you.
