There are three types of passwords:

 - User password, this is simply the password for the mailman user on
your server, it lets you login as the user "mailman", all of Mailman's
processes run as this user.  To change this password, login as root and
    passwd mailman

 - Mailman Site password, this lets you login to any list as an admin
and look at or modify the configuration, as well as approve posts
(anything an admin of the list can do).  To change this password, login
to the server as root or the mailman user and run:

 - List password, each list has a password that allows a local admin to
modify or configure the list, as well as approve posts to the list.  To
change this password, login to the Web Admin page for the list (using
the Mailman Site password), go to the bottom of the General Options web
page and put in the new password.  This password will be specific to
this list.

Hope this helps!
