The roster (via web or email 'who' command) is available to Anyone,
List members or List admin only depending on the setting of Privacy
It seems that your lists are set up with the roster restricted to
members. If that is the case, the simple format of the email 'who'
If you are the list admin and not also a list member, you can supply
the list admin or moderator password, and in Mailman 2.1.10, this will
have the additional benefit of showing hidden members.
for a different aspect of this subject.
Note that the email 'who' command has different syntax depending on the
setting of private_roster. If you send a 'help' command to a list's
-request address, you will get a description of the various requests
with the appropriate syntax for that list.
