[Mailman-Users] How to change the administrators account email?

I appreciate your help. I've spoken to my colleague, he is not sure on how to change the email either, which helps a lot I suppose. What he has told me, is that when he first set up and configured Mailman, he used his work email instead of IT's. I'm not too sure if this has shed some light on the issue I'm having?

We have no idea what you are seeing. If you can post the actual URLs
that you are going to, we might be able to be more helpful.

Where do you see this "subscribe" icon? If you click it, does it take
you to a page that looks something like the one at

If so, where you ultimately want to go is to the link at the bottom of
that page that looks like

LISTNAME administrative interface (requires authorization)

Once there, you need to authenticate with either the list's admin
password or the site password if there is one. See

Perhaps you should be talking to your "colleague who is leaving at the
end of the month".

Also note that what we are talking about here is the 'owner' address for
a particular list. Standard GNU Mailman has no concept of a sitewide
admin email address other than perhaps the 'owner' of the 'mailman' site
list. If what you are dealing with is some non-standard Mailman, e.g.,
Mailman on a cPanel host, there may be others on this list who can help,
but I can't. But you need to tell us exactly what you are talking about.
