It's not often that simple. Sometimes people will cross post or Cc: non
list members, and then a non-member replies to all including your list.
What I do on lists I moderate is I never approve non-member posts, but
sometimes, if a post is relevant, I will forward the message from the
"held message" notice to the list. I may edit the forwarded message.
If I think it is important that the sender know her message went to
the list, I Cc: her on the forward, and depending on circumstances, I
may add a Reply-To: to the sender.
