If this is really Mailman 2.0, I think you have to send a 'subscribe'
command to listname-request at lists.blah blah blah.

The listname-subscribe and listname-join addresses were first
introduced in Mailman 2.1.

If it's really Mailman 2.1, and you get no response to a message to
listname-subscribe, see

Also check the list's Privacy options...->Subscription
