When I installed mailman a default list called mailman was created (as
I'm sure everyone here already knows) and I understood it was not used
for anything but management. I've pretty much ignored it since the
Anyway, a member of one of our other lists somehow got herself listed as
requesting a subscription to the mailman list. I keep getting this
message every morning:

Following the provided link doesn't take me to the usual login page,
instead I end up on the generic listinfo page
I can log into the list management interface for the mailman list, but
when I click on the link to "Tend to pending moderator requests" I end
up on the same general listinfo page instead.
I found the controlling file(s) in /var/mailman/lists/mailman...
leastwise the members name and address are in the request.pck file. Can
I simply delete request.pck (and/or request.db) to clear this? Is there
anything else I need to do to clear the pending subscription? Thanks!
