I've attached an example excel version of a mailman list. Column E is in
exactly the correct format for a cut & paste insertion into Mailman web
Mass Subscription form. That column can also be saved as a notepad file
and then imported to Mailman. This approach saved my bacon when a former
host went belly-up and I had to move to a new host and recreate
everything from this file, my only backup!

If you are using a Mailman 2.1.x version, each subscriber's entry
can include a full name.

You can list the members using the bin/list_members program
from the shell prompt on your Mailman server.  (Use the
--fullnames option to include the members' names.)

If you don't have shell access on the server, you can use a
script to visit the list administration pages and build a
list of subscribers.  (It also has a --fullnames option.)
