I get the impression the poster may not have shell access or command line 
knowledge, but in any case, here's what we do (and you can do the same 
thing for config_list info):

first, create a three line text file called lista-header (and listb-header, 
etc if needed):

From: admin at mydomain.com
To: admin at mydomain.com
Subject: Lista daily list

Now, in chron, add (use crontab -e as root):

#Every day, generate the member lists info

45 9 * * * /usr/lib/mailman/bin/list_members -f -o 
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/lista.txt lista
46 9 * * * /usr/lib/mailman/bin/list_members -f -o 
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/listb.txt listb

#Every day, send member lists to admin

50 9 * * * /bin/cat /usr/lib/mailman/bin/lista-header 
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/lista.txt | /usr/sbin/sendmail -t
51 9 * * * /bin/cat /usr/lib/mailman/bin/listb-header 
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/listb.txt | /usr/sbin/sendmail -t
