Hi Jan,

You're most welcome. :)

Yes.  See nnrpd.access (or readers.conf if you are running inn 2.3).

I think you should make him a real moderator, that is redirect all the
postings to his e-mail address rather than let them be posted into the
newsgroup and removed later.  See file "moderators".  He will need to
supply a special header "Approved: " in those postings that he lets
through, that is he will have to repost all those good postings with this
header.  I don't know how to do that in Outlook though.  If he does not
like this :) then you may try to play with permissions to cancel articles.
The danger here though is that if you disable the check, then anyone can
cancel anyone else's article which is generally not what you want.  This
is set in "inn.conf".
