1 - Don't make changes to the Defaults.py file; make them
to the mm_cfg.py file
2 - Changes to the mm_cfg.py file do not affect existing
lists; these changes affect future lists - they act
as a default for them
3 - If you really want to do this from the command line
then use ~mailman/bin/config_list to dump out the list
configuration and make the changes there, then dump
them back into the list using config_lists again.
4 - Go the easy route and use the Web-admin to make your
changes to the lists configuration. The options you
are looking for are in the General Options page, and
fields are clearly marked (including the place where
you insert the email address).
