Send email to listname-request at domain.org with the subscribe command in
the subject

subscribe initial_user_password digest

The second argument is literally 'digest'. A password must be included
or the subscription will be Regular per default and the password will
be 'digest'. If the mail is 'From:' the subscribee, that's all you
need. If not you can add address=subscribee at example.com as a third
argument to the subscribe command to specify the address.
