This is complex. In order for monthly reminders to be sent at all, the
installation must be running Mailman's cron/mailpasswds. This is
normally run, at least in the recommended Mailman crontab, at 05:00 on
the first of the month.

Given that cron/mailpasswds is being run, the lists General Options ->
send_reminders setting controls whether reminders are sent for that
list. If that setting is No, no reminders are sent regardless of user's
options. If it is Yes, then each user may opt in or out of reminders via
the user's options page "Get password reminder email for this list?"
setting. This user setting usually defaults to Yes,
