Your previous was seen, but perhaps it was not answered because it's not
clear what you're asking. If you could provide some further explanation
it would help. Mailman has no direct support for password protecting an
email. Mailman is only in the business of being a relay, taking a
message from you and redistributing to members of the list. For the most
part mailman cares very little about the content of the email and has no
password protection of email receipt and delivery. On the other hand
there are a variety of schemes by which a sender of email can digitally
sign and/or encrypt an email, but all of those schemes are local to the
sender and receiver and embedded in the content of the mail, mailman as
a distributor of messages is ignorant of them.
