add_members [options] listname
A file containing addresses of the members to be added, one
address per line. This list of people become non-digest
members. If file is `-', read addresses from stdin. Note that
-n/--non-digest-members-file are deprecated synonyms for this
Similar to above, but these people become digest members.
Set whether or not to send the list members the `there's going
to be big changes to your list' message. defaults to no.
Set whether or not to send the list members a welcome message,
overriding whatever the list's `send_welcome_msg' setting is.
Set whether or not to send the list administrators a
notification on the success/failure of these subscriptions,
overriding whatever the list's `admin_notify_mchanges'
Print this help message and exit.
