The part of the URI to the left of the "?" in e.g.


should be exactly the same as the URI of the Membership
Management...->Mass Subscription page in your web admin interface for
the list. Is that the case in your tests? Also, the "[" and "]" around
the domain.name, listname, user email address and admin password are
to indicate that these are "variables". They are not literally
included in the URI.

If what you tried is "correct" with these things in mind, then I have
no idea why it doesn't work. When I do it, it returns the Mass
Subscription page with a Successfully subscribed indication for [user
email address].
