FAQ
Hi,

Is there any way in Mailman to allow the users to set options (usually nomail style options) without the password argument? The system would then send out a confirmation email which the user could reply or click a link in the email to confirm.

We have a lot of users who subscribe by sending to list-subscribe at domain.com and replying to the confirmation mail, they don't go near the web interface :)

Thanks.
Andrew.

    This would require significant source modifications.

    But they should get a welcome message with their password when they
    subscribe, and they should get monthly password reminders, or if they
    don't, they can request a reminder via the email 'password' command.

    You could edit the list's welcome message to further emphasize that they
    need their password to set options such as no mail and perhaps to
    explain how to change their password.

    That's all the information I needed, thanks for that.
