Thank you, it's version 2.1.14 on the installation I use the 
most. And my real question is --

The problem is, I want to use listadmin for all my lists if 
possible: https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=listadmin

and it works for lists at an installation which runs 2.1.9. But 
listadmin doesn't seem to work with 2.1.14. Maybe listadmin isn't 
being kept up to date? Or does it work with the newest version of 

Or maybe I have some syntactic error in the .listadmin.ini file? 
The installation is running at a subdomain, mailman.efn.no, so 
that one of the lists have this address: 
datahistorie at mailman.efn.no

and I have this entry for the list in .listadmin.ini :

username thomas at efn.no
spamlevel 5
default discard
password ......
adminurl http://{domain}/mailman/admin/{list}
datahistorie at mailman.efn.no

Is the adminurl syntax correct?
