That setting only affects the default value of send_reminders (Send
monthly password reminders?) for lists created after you make the change.
> but the setting " Send monthly password reminders?" for one mailman mailing list is set to "Yes", Can each subscriber of this list receive a monthly email reminder of what mailman lists they were subscribed to and the password for this list?
If only one list has send_reminders = Yes, the members of that one list
who have their own "Get password reminder email for this list?" set to
Yes will receive a monthly reminder for that list only.
I.e., as long as cron/mailpasswds is being run monthly a user will
receive a monthly reminder which includes the options page link and
password for each list in the domain of which she is a member for which
both the list's send_reminders = Yes and the her "Get password reminder
email for this list?" = Yes and only those lists, unless there are no
such lists in which case no reminder is sent.
So if your question is will this reminder include the list name but not
the password (or the list name and password) for lists of which she is a
member but for which send_reminders = No, the answer is No. Lists for
which send_reminders = No will not be mentioned in any way in the
monthly reminder email.
