[Mailman-Users] Passwords

We have set up Mailman as a closed, private list for an international 
society.  Members are subscribed by the Secretary, via the Admin 
control panel.  (Anyone who wants to join the list has to e-mail the 
Secretary, and only the society members are eligible to be joined to the list.)

As far as I can see, that means that members won't ever be asked for 
a password/don't need a password to send messages to the list.  But 
they still would need a password to be able to view the Archives 
which we have set to "private".  When I tested accessing the 
archives, I got in with my own e-mail address and the Admin password 
(my own e-mail address is on the subscriber list and is difference 
from the list-owner e-mail address).

Obviously, we can't give 400-plus people the Admin or Moderator 
passwords so that they can view the Archives.  Is there a way of 
having a third password, which we can give to the membership (and 
reset from time to time), to enable members to view the Archives?
