Yes, use the following command in a message BODY and send to
the request address of the list, <mylist>-request at somewhere.com

subscribe password [digest-option] [address=<myother at email.address>]

Where 'subscribe' is the command for adding the member, 
       password is the choosen password for that list.

Digest-option and address is not obligatory, but with them you can
override the default. So:
   digest-option can be nodigest or digest, nodigest is the default
And address=myother at address.stg tells Mailman to subscribe this 
email address and not with that from where the subscription request
came, default is the address of the message sender.

You can read more about the email commands in the $prefix/templates/help.txt
