Okay, so the better way would be not to use the adminpasswd in the 
command but a userpasswd instead.

I tried to run the command as designated in the link below but it 
does not work as expected. I received this error:

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.6
We're sorry, we hit a bug!
Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing 
of traceback and other system information has been explicitly 
inhibited, but the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman 
error logs.

Best wishes,
