I have 2 mail lists and in General Options set both lists to NO on "Sending monthly password reminders". All new subscribers are still set to YES when they join.
The mailman is provided by my host company and lists are managed through cPanel. The hosting company was able to replicate the issue.
It is Mailman version 2.1.10
