If you have access to the Mailman configuration, you can put


in mm_cfg.py. Then each list will have an additional choice of 'None'
for subscribe_policy (the default will still be 'Confirm' unless you
change that too).

This may work for you, but 'None' allows all subscription requests to
be effective immediately whether from your PHP code or not.

Otherwise, your PHP code could post the admin mass subscribe form data
via the web, but the drawback here is the list's admin password has to
be available to the PHP code. See
and possibly other posts in the archive.
