Subscribing by email allows specification of a password.

Every list member has a password regardless of how they were
subscribed. If they were subscribed by a method that doesn't allow
specifying a password or if they just didn't specify one, a random
password is assigned, and if the list sends a welcome message, the
welcome message contains the password and a link to the user's options
page where it can be changed.
