Maybe, maybe not. You'd have to have read and execute
permissions available to you into the space where Mailman is
installed, usually in /usr/local/mailman/. Even if you had shell
access, your hosting provider might not give you that kind of access.

I think you're going to need to use the script tools I previously
mentioned. I don't remember the exact URL, you'll need to search the
archives of the list.
