Send a blank e-mail with subject "help" (without the quotes) to your
listname-request at ... address to get the form of the "who" command.

Or visit the roster from the listinfo page or directly at something
like http://www.example.com/mailman/roster/<listname>

Both these methods will *not* show members who've opted to be excluded
from these lists.

To get all the members in one list without command line access, you
have to script the web interface. See
http://starship.python.net/crew/jwt/mailman/#throughtheweb for an
example script.
