Hi there,

Having figured out how to subscribe people using the
email]&adminpw=[admin password] method (thanks guys), I am now needing 
to find a way to set the users initial password. It seems that Mailman 
auto generates the passwords, but I'm trying to find a way to set the 
users password to the same as their passwords used on the rest of the site.

I have tried constructing a URL similar to the last problem, but while 
it lets me into the users options, it doesn't actually change their 
password. I have tried the following:


Could anyone: A) Show me what the actually string would be, or B) tell 
me a way to set the initial password for a user when you mass subscrbie
