As long as you have shell access to the mailman installation, you can
change the site password with /usr/lib/mailman/bin/mmsitepass (may be
located elsewhere depending on your installation).  That allows access
to all admin screens, from which you can do anything, including
resetting passwords.  I don't recall offhand where the various
password resetting options are.
