[Mailman-Users] Un/subscribe to a Mailman list via a publicly available website

We have a number of public websites which provide users with updated information about the site through a Mailman list. Currently, users can complete a typical HTML form and submit their email address.  The website sends an email to a staff person's email account who then manually subscribes the email address using the Mailman admin website.

We'd like to remove the manual process and program the website in such a way the user's email address is sent to the list and it is automatically subscribed.

I've read copious amounts of Mailman documentation and list archives but haven't figured out how this could be done. We tried having the website "spoof" an email coming from the user but this didn't pan out in part because of the password issue.

Is this even possible to do with Mailman? Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
