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

+) 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,
