You can easily do this on a list-by-list basis vial the list config file. To get the config file via email for a majordomo list, send email to majordomo and say:

	config listname approvalpassword

My list has:

>	# taboo_body           [regexp_array] (undef) <resend>

>/unsubscribe list/

To submit a new config file, you send to majordomo your newconfig with the command:

	newconfig listname approvalpassword
followed by the entire new config file
