1. Mass subscription format:

"Real Name" <email at address.com>
"Real2 Name2" <email2 at address2.com>
has worked for me. "Real Name" is optional, you can just put email
addresses on each line, e.g.

email at address.com
email2 at address2.com

2. You can use email commands to retrieve the list of members by doing

To: listname-request at domain.com
From: (a subscriber's email address, pref. admin)
Subject: who password [address=<address>]
From the help:
who password [address=<address>]
See everyone who is on this mailing list. The roster is limited to list
members only, and you must supply your membership password to retrieve it.
If you're posting from an address other than your membership address,
specify your membership address with `address=<address>' (no brackets
around the email address, and no quotes!)

You should be able to manipulate the reply easily enough to create a good
text file for uploading to mailman.

My hosting company provides mailman for mailing lists. I am happy
with the functionality, but I have two questions

1. What is the format for the upload file in mass subscription
2. Is it possible to get the reverse - i.e. a listing from one list
that can then be massaged and used as the upload for a new list?
