When you added the members using "add_members" Mailman assigned random 
passwords to each of the people.  You can have Mailman send out the 
passwords to each person as you add them.  Since you did not do that, you 
can run the Password emailing cron job now, and have Mailman send each user 
their current password.

Look in ~mailman/cron for the crontab entries and read the comments to 
figure out the exact command to send out the passwords.  There are other 
ways of doing this, but that works...
