In general you point folks at the "listinfo" web page for a Mailman list
and then let them subscribe or unsubscribe themselves.

Users can also send email to <listname>-request at foo.com and in the
subject put either "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" in the subject (no
quotes of course).

The admin or moderator for the list can also log-into to the "admin"
web-page for a Mailman list and then add or delete folks from the

A sysadmin on the server console can login as "mailman" and run quite a

are described in the FAQ (as is most of the above information).

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
