Looks as though it's not directly possible (having seen Mark's post,
too), but a work-around might be to send the list-creation mails over
to (a) another list, so you can filch the mails from the archive, and
bounce on to -owner, (b) your own mail-system and bounce them along, (c)
save the passwords on a wiki/text-file or something else..

Or, if being moody: "you should have kept the mail, shouldn't you."

change_pw may also be of use. (which is what *I* tend to use)
