Fortunately Roberto, most spammers don't use Mailman.  There is a *lot*
of other programs out there that allow them to spam from windows boxes
(as well as Unix).

Santa has already answered your "ToDo" request,  The password command
retrieves passwords via email - though it is unnecessary as the
unsubscribe command removes folks without need of the password - you
have to respond to the email as a confirmation.

HoHoHo Merry Christmas!
