Hello Mailman Users

Is there a way for a list-creator to access the admin section of
different lists?

My password allows me to create lists, but not access the admin section
of various lists whose administrators have their own passwords.

Thanks in advance for any clues.

regards
Mark Dale

    Only with the list's admin password or the Mailman site password. The
    list-creator password conveys no additional authority.

    Of course, when you create a list, you know the admin password because
    you specified it, but after you turn the list over to an admin who
    changes the password, you either need that password or the site
    password to admin the list.

    The site admin password gives you full web admin access, at least as
    far as Mailman goes. You can access any list you want -- this is the
    Mailman equivalent of root password, and should be treated with great
    care.
