[Mailman-Users] Questions on subscription page.

I use a PHP page to list the lists that I have, and they then click on which 
lists they wish to subscribe to.

That form goes off and generates an email request (using PHP's mail() function) 
to the -request@ address requesting a subscription for which ever list they ask for.

The Mailman pages only come in after they get their confirmation email.
