You might try including the Approved: <list admin password> header in
the subscription request. Alternately, is your PHP application on the
same server? Can it call the mailman wrappers directly instead of
doing the (kind of ugly) hack of sending mails?

Last but not least, PHP *should* be able to access the mailman web
interface regardless, and post the address to the mass_subscribe page
of the mailman web interface.
