Me too. If you mean you don't know the list password and/or the site
password then if you shouldn't know these things, pass the problem to
the person who should, and if you should know these things, see

If you mean that attempts to go to URLs like
<http://www.example.com/mailman/admin/mailman> and
<http://www.example.com/mailman/admindb/mailman> take you to the
listinfo overview page instead, your web server is misconfigured. You
have something like

RedirectMatch /mailman[/]*$   http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo

and it should be

RedirectMatch ^/mailman[/]*$   http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo

Fix this, but in the mean time you can use URL's like

<http://www.example.com/mailman/admin/mailman/x> and
<http://www.example.com/mailman/admindb/mailman/x> instead.
