[Mailman-Users] broadcast-type lists

I'm quickly learning how important email is to web development.  I 
have quite a few clients interested in broadcast-type email lists. 
The "Keep me informed about your Widgets" type of email lists (NO 
SPAM).  Is mailman suitable for this?

I have been trying to build a configuration to test this out, but I 
have run into a few snags.  I'd like to replace the standard "You are 
subscribed" email message with a custom one, but I can't get it to 
send the user's password.  I spent a few hours digging through source 
trying to enable a %(password)s option, but I can't Python my way out 
of a wet paper bag.

Any help would be appreciated
