You can also search by partial name or email address, e.g, search for
yahoo.com to find all members with yahoo.com addresses[1]. You can also
search for members whose name or address matches a regular expression
pattern, e.g. ^j.*com$ to find members whose name or address starts with
'j' and ends with 'com'. All matches are case insensitive. see the 'Find
member' help link for documentation of the regular expression syntax.

Not directly from the web UI. If you have access to Mailman's command
line tools, you can use Mailman's bin/list_members for this, e.g.

bin/list_members --nomail LISTNAME

See 'bin/list_members --help' for more.

If you only have web access, the script at
<http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/mailman-subscribers.py> and/or the FAQ
at <http://wiki.list.org/x/aYA9> may help.
