[Mailman-Users] mass subscribe and specify password

Need some help here... I've scanned the FAQ and havn't found a clear (to me)
answer yet -

What I am wanting to do is use the List administrator's  "Mass Subscribe
Members" under Member Management (web interface) and specify not only the
users email but the users initial password.

For example - under mass subscribe:

dmoore at aibi.org [PASSWORD]
dmoore at aibi.net [PASSWORD]
myemail at aibi.org [PASSWORD]
youremail at yourdom.ain [PASSWORD]


where in all four cases the password for that user is "password" or whatever
text is assigned as the persons INITIAL password - if they want to change it
later that is fine but specifying the INITIAL password.

I'm trying to set up the initial list(s) (apx 300-400 users each) without
the users having to "confirm" - otherwise I can use the email interface and
subscribe them with password using the syntax:  subscribe PASSWORD
address=<EMAIL at ADDRESS>, but then each one must "confirm" their own

Any ideas? - Again I am only a LIST/domain admin and not Mailman/server
admin ...
If I'm looking at my site specs right we are on Mailman version 2.0.13.

Thanks in advance.
