The site password should work anywhere a password is required. If it
doesn't, maybe you aren't using the correct password. If necessary,
you can set a new site password with bin/mmsitepass (bin/mmsitepass
for more info).

Perhaps you misunderstood what was meant by "MailMan administrator's
password" in the original reply. What was referred to was the site
password as set by bin/mmsitepass, not any other such as the password
for the mailman site list.
