[Mailman-Users] Switching web hosts.... Transferring mailman mailing lists

The following commands helped me to do this:

bin/config_list -o filename listname  
bin/list_members -o filename listname

These commands export to a text file the configuration settings for the
list and the members of the list. To import the settings into the new
list substitute -i for -o. To add the members use:

bin/add_members -wn -an -r filename listname

This will add them silently without sending notification of joining this
list. Checkout the help with each command for the available switches.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Switching web hosts.... Transferring mailman
mailing lists

I am in the process of switching between web hosts and it suddenly dawn
me that I do not know how to transfer the existing mailing list user,
archives and settings to the new server.
Both servers are using MailMan for the implementation of mailing lists.
Can someone tell me how I can safely perform this transfer?
