    Yes. The administrators of very large scale Mailman mailing
    lists are effectively required to do everything via the command line,
    because the web interface becomes virtually useless for them.

    However, I do not know the exact sequence of commands that would
    be required.

    I'm not sure about command line, but you can do it by e-mail. If
    admin_immed_notify is set to Yes, the notification message that is
    sent contains a message/rfc822 part similar to the following:

    --------------------------------------------------
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
    Subject: confirm 750c69674069227167abb400c93d75b58234d6f1
    Sender: <listname>-request at example.com
    From: <listname>-request at example.com

    If you reply to this message, keeping the Subject: header intact,
    Mailman will discard the held message. Do this if the message is
    spam. If you reply to this message and include an Approved: header
    with the list password in it, the message will be approved for posting
    to the list. The Approved: header can also appear in the first line
    of the body of the reply.
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Thus, you can actually send any message to the <listname>-request
    address with the confirm <token> command in the subject with an

    Approved: <password>

    header or first body line to approve the message or without Approved:
    to discard it.
