No shell access to my hosting service. I presume I would at least need
the shell access to do a list_members? I do have access to cron jobs
and I have used that to poke around a bit and locate the subsriber
lists. No luck there. Would I likely have access to list_members if I
had shell access?
I have found that I can not easily get a list of subscribers emailed to
me with a "who" command transmitted via email. I would have to change
a parameter on each and every subscriber via the web interface. Total
number of subscribers spread over two lists is about 400. Is there a
convenient way to expose the addresses of all subscribers?
In the past, I have copied and pasted out of the web listing of
subscribers. That, too, is pretty tedious at 20 a time. Not something
I'd want to do every week or so.
HEY! I think I've got it! I put "~mailman/bin/list_members >
list_members" in a cron job and got a list_members file that contains
