More than a year ago, I had changed R-devel policy to

  1. subscribers can post freely
  2. everything else is on "hold" for moderator approval +)
  3. ``spam-suspicious e-mails'' are also put "on hold".

Now your problem is that you are subscribed under a different e-mail address than the one you are currently sending mail from (and also use in your sig. below).
To the mailing list software (mailman) this is equivalent to a non-subscriber.

+) the moderator can **manually** add non-subscriber

   addresses to a list which is treated as "allowed to post"    and I could do this next time ...
   but my general attitude is that r-devel subscribers should    make these things work...

Best regards,
