Lists that do not have any membership restrictions can be subscribed to or unsubscribed from by sending an e-mail to the list. List members are then automatically issued a password that allows them to change additional list settings on the list members control page.
The issued password is also used to access the private list archives, if available. The level of control and availability of archives is determined by the list administrator.
The list administrator may require additional confirmation of your e-mail address and/or approval for the subscription. You can contact a list administrator by sending an e-mail to ListNamefirstname.lastname@example.org.
All lists have a list member and information page. See the List of Public Mailman Mailing Lists or visit the list information link in your subscription confirmation and/or list e-mails. Members can log in to change their list options or view private archives, if available.
You can also request to have your password e-mailed to you if you have forgotten it or if you never received one.
