Perhaps my question wasn't clear. I host lists for several clubs and
charities. These lists tend to come in pairs, i.e. xyz-announce and
xyz-general. I also host a bunch of lists for my church and members
might be on as many as 10 lists. So I have two problems.  I want
a member to only have to remember one password. I might be able to do
this with SQL commands as mentioned above.  I only want the users
to have to enter their password once. For example, if a user enters
a password to access the xyz-announce archives, he should not have to
enter it again to access the xyz-general archives or any other Mailman
list hosted on my site.
What I would prefer to have is one site-wide database for passwords
and separate databases for each list for user preferences.
