Entering the password from memory?
This isn't a limitation of passwordmaker or any other password
program... it is a limitation imposed by the (as far as I understand it,
but I may be missing something too) use case.
As far as I know there is no program that is capable of reading minds
and/or intuiting what password should be used based solely on what
someone knows in their head.
That said, there is actually a more secure option...
passwordmaker has the ability to encrypt the password that is stored, if
the form allows it, which I'm fairly certain mailman's login forms do -
let me check - yep...
So, the only other option that I can offer would be to create a custom
account for the login page in passwordmaker, then add the password
field, username and password fields to the 'Advanced Auto-Populate'
fields as described here:

No, just trying to help is all... :)
