Yes! That's very true (about only seeing the page once logged in!).

(quite a long response, sorry.)
AIUI (I'm not properly running MM3 anywhere, at the moment), MM3
understands "these are all of my email addresses", and associates
those to the person, e.g., I may be subscribed to various lists
on lists.example.org with these addresses:
adam at amyl.org.uk
adam-mailman at amyl.org.uk
adam at toomanyhats.com
backintwoweeks at toomanyhats.org
example at gmail.com
foo+spam at no-mx.thisparish.org
iveforgottenwhoiam at hotmail.com
listmaster at local.no2id.net
postmaster at amyl.org.uk
spamharvest at amyl.org.uk
IMO, it would be nice to:
* Set one of those as my 'default' address for
* ... when I subscribe to a new list, from an address Mailman
knows about (hum, the fun part of this could be when
subscribing to a new list, with an 'unknown' address,
and later migrating that to 'my account'),
* ... sending 'system' stuff to (e.g., password reset
* Be able to set mail delivery for a chosen list to another
of my email addresses (either in replacement of, or together)
* Send administriva elsewhere, if I'm an admin/mod (e.g., to
( * Super-bonus-points, to be able to set Mailman detected HTML
mails to another of my (webmail) addresses )
* "Forget about this email address" (and change my subscriptions
to.../unsubscribe me completely)
* Set all lists (for a given address) over to "no mail"
(awesomeness would be "until YYYY-MM-DD" -- for dealing with
holidays, I don't no-mail, because I will forget about one

I'm not too sure where it should be. Perhaps as a multiple-selecting
options box, with subscribed addresses (by default/AJAXywhatever)
Mailing List 1 [ adam at amyl.org.uk ]
[ X adam-mailman at amyl.org.uk X ]
[ adam at toomanyhats.com ]
[ X example at gmail.com X ]
[ .... ]
Mailing List 2 [ foo at example.org ] [ admin list 2 ]
where 'X' foo 'x' denotes a selection, and the wildcard addresses
Actually, as I think of it, maybe selecting an address that's not
subscribed should trigger a "do you want to subscribe to List X as
baz at example.org" -- overkill/function creep? Is it something users

Thanks, btw for the efforts. There's been a lot of thought here, from
all. And design by committee rarely works, and I'm hard skinned, so
feel free to ignore my views!
