[Mailman-Users] unsubscribing without password?

The password requirement is for subscriber protection, both, against getting
subscribed unwillingly, and getting dropped inadvertently. Mailman, by
automatically sends the password every month, so users are constantly
of password. If you "add" everyone, say, on the 25th of a month, then, on
the 1st
day of subsequent months, they receive their reminder. Those who **really**
don't want to be on the list will make the effort to follow the unsubscribe
instructions. If you include the links to "list info" and unsubscribe
in the header or footer of every message, they should be able to leave and
change by simple steps.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] unsubscribing without password?

| Hi. I've recently installed mailman, and would like to use it so that our
organization can send announcements to the subscriber list. All of the users
are added by us... it will be rare that anyone subscribes themself. But
users will be unsubscribing thereselves. So, when someone wants to
unsubscribe, it makes it a hassle for them to go and find their password
since they didn't create it in the first place. Is there any simple way for
a user to unsubscribe without their password? I noticed that 2.1 is in beta,
but I saw no changelog, so I'm not sure if something like this has been
implemented yet.
| Thanks,
| Justin
