Well, it doesn't work for me to authenticate to a list using the Admin
listcreator password. I can use the site Adminstrator password to get
into any list. I'm running Mailman 2.1.6. This type of feature for
different levels of access to a list might be a good feature in the
future for Mailman.
I do apologize if this was in the FAQ Wizard, I did a brief scan in
there and must have overlooked it.
