You may be missing this bit from NEWS:

    * Users can no longer post articles containing Approved: headers to
      moderated groups by default; they must be specifically given that
      permission with the access: parameter in readers.conf.  See the man
      page for more details.

See readers.conf:

         A set of letters specifying the permissions granted to the client.
         The letters are chosen from the following set:

         R  The client may read articles.

         P  The client may post articles.

         A  The client may post articles with Approved: headers (in other
            words, may approve articles for moderated newsgroups).  By
            default, this is not allowed.

My fault; I didn't draw enough attention to this in the INN 2.3.0 release
because I'd forgotten that we'd made that change.
