You can do it for them, but you'll be unsubscribing them and
resubscribing them under their new email address.

Remember, Mailman has no understanding of "people."  It knows
only email addresses.  So, to mailman, mikediehn at domain.com is a
completely different thing to michaeldiehn at domain.com.
