EXAMPLE:
configset listname set_policy = closed

WARNING: If you choose set_policy 'open', you allow anyone to forge
         a return address and shut off another subscribers email with
         'set list nomail'. It is HIGHLY recommended that you use
         open+confirm instead.

The set_policy configuration setting is used to restrict access
to the set command.

The following eight values are supported:

 auto            Anyone can use the set command for any address.

 auto+confirm    Anyone can use the set command for any address,
                 but the command must be confirmed by the person at
                 the affected address.

 auto+password   Anyone can use the set command for any address,
                 but the person issuing the command must supply a
                 personal password.

 open            Anyone can use the set command for her own
                 address.  If anyone attempts to use the set
                 command for a different address, the approval of
                 the list moderators will be required.

 open+confirm    Anyone can use the set command for her own
                 address.  If anyone attempts to use the set
                 command for a different address, the approval of
                 the list moderators will be required.  The command
                 must be confirmed by the person at the affected
                 address.

 open+password   Anyone can use the set command for her own
                 address.  If anyone attempts to use the set
                 command for a different address, the approval of
                 the list moderators will be required.  The person
                 issuing the command must supply a personal password.

 closed          Anyone can use the set command for any address,
                 but the approval of the list moderators is required.

 closed+confirm  Anyone can use the set command for any address,
                 but the approval of the person at the affected address
                 and the list moderators is required.

This setting determines who can use the set command to change their 
personal settings on a mailing list.  It has no effect upon auxiliary 
lists.

Using "closed" allows the list owner to set up list defaults which
cannot be changed by the subscribers without the administrators'
approval.  This can be useful for "probation" periods, etc.

An administrative password can be used to issue the set command,
regardless of the value of this setting.

Any rules in the access_rules setting related to the set command
will take precedence over the value of this setting.

For the GLOBAL pseudo-list, this setting determines who can use
the "set ALL" command to change the settings for all of their
subscriptions at once.
