Dear Mailmen:

I have just transferred 150 users over from Majordomo to Mailman. using
the "bulk add" textarea in the web admin interface. The problem is, none
of the users now has a password. Without passwords, the users can't modify
their service or remove themselves from the list.

Is there a default password assigned to bulk-added users? Is there a way
to manually assign passwords to these users, either using the commandline
or web interface? Or are these users just stuck?

Sincerely, Jonathan Cohen

    One password is automatically generated per user (did the same change last week)

    they have passwords, they just don't know them. So I'm assuming that
    when you bulk loaded, you turned off having the "welcome" message
    sent, which would have sent them their password.

    I'd suggest you run the script that sends out the monthly "you are
    subscribed to, this is your password" message, which'll give them the
    information they need.

    Passwords are, FWIW, random, so there's no way you can get them this
    info any other way, unless they each go to the page and have it
    re-sent to them manually.
