There would appear to be a different password for the admins &

None of us on this list can provide a "temporary password" for the
lists (unless one of us hosts the lists for you). You need to contact
the person who manages the list(s).

There are two areas of adminish web-interface /admin and /admindb: the
first being for complete list-admin, the second for handling list

For the moderator password to be changed, you should probably contact
the owner of the list (e.g., by mailing
    <listname-owner at lists.example.com>), 
and ask them to sort you out: there may well be other moderators who
will duly need any new moderator's password, too.
