~mailman/bin/list_members <listname> - will dump out the email addresses
of a list

~mailman/bin/sync_members - can be used to sync the membership up with a
text file of email addresses.

You can modify the trigger values for the digest blast and then send
your message.  You are forcing your folks to use digest mode when they
subscribe to the list (or are subscribed to the list by you) - thus they
will only get a digest from the list.

For the message to go immediately, it either has to go out as a digest
(with adjusted trigger so it happens right away), or you have to send
the message out via another list (or directly).
