The Mailman site admin password can be used to administer any list. 
Of course, the individual list admin password can always be reset, 
either by another Mailman list admin or by the site admin.

But in all cases, all you're talking about is a password -- there is 
no separate account name associated with that.  Anyone who has the 
password gets in, but if you don't have the password then you are 
kept out.  It's not like you have to specify both username and 
password -- it's password only.

With regards to admin passwords, those are the only choices. 
Anything else will require source code modifications.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006.  If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
