Are you trying to log in as a list member, moderator or admin?

Only the user options page and private archives ask for email address
and they want a member address and password although the list admin
password will work.

None of these login pages display "401 Unauthorized" upon failure. They
do return a 401 status header, but the page content is just the login
page with an error message like "Authorization failed."

So what exactly is asking for your user/password? Is it a mailman page
or perhaps the web server's http auth or something else?
