FAQ
I read the following FAQ but can seem to make it work on my end:

3.8. I forgot my list password! How do I get it back?The site password
can be used to log into anywhere a member password or list password
would go. So you can reset the password to something you do know: use
the site password to log into the list and change the password (you
don't need to know the old list password to do this). If you haven't got
a site password, use $(MAILMAN_HOME)/bin/mmsitepass to set one.
(If you are not also the site administrator, have the site
administrator change the list password for you. Once the site
administrator has set it, you have a new list password, and you can
change it again to something that only you know.)
If you have a shell on the box running mailman, you can use the (
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/ ) change_pw tool. Run change_pw --help for usage.

- My problem is ... that I don't have a change_pw under the
/mailman/bin ... and when I log into the list with the Site Admin
password - I can seem to change the password. I mean, I change it - but
it doesn't take.

Any suggestions?

    bin/change_pw has been in the distribution since 2.1a2 (over 4 years).
    I don't know why you wouldn't have it unless yours is a 2.0.x
    installation, in which case I don't think I can help much anyway.

    You can download change_pw from
    <http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/mailman/mailman/bin/change_pw?view=log>,
    but if you do this, you need to change @PYTHON@ on the first line to
    the actual path to python on your system.

    Do other changes you make in the admin interface 'stick'. If so, I have
    no idea why a password change wouldn't, but if not see FAQs 4.45
    and/or 4.65.
