[Mailman-Users] other thoughts about email commands

I sent an earlier message about list owner commands for subscribing, 
unsubsribing, etc. I do see now where I can prevent a approval message 
being sent to the subscriber. However, it looks like I will probably 
just make myself the owner and have the list owner send the subscribe 
and unsubscribe commands to the request address. I will initially set 
the password for everyone to be the same and the list owner will use 
that password for future subscriptions and unsubscriptions. I will end 
up doing the approving of all these requests.

However, I have another question about issuing email commands for 
subscribing. In the web interface, I can add information along with the 
email address, by using the syntax "Joe Blow"<joe.blow at anywhere.com>. If 
I issue this by email, Mailman chokes on it. Here is an example.

subscribe password address="Joe Blow"<joe.blow at anywhere.com>.

Mailman seems confused by brackets and quotes. Any ideas how to do this 
via email?
