    Anyone know how the sysadmin can change or recover the password a client has lost for a mailing list they have setup - it contains a main customer mail list and he is unable to admin - edit it

    Thanks :cool:

    run:

    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/change_pw

    the options are as below:
    =======================
    Usage: change_pw [options]

    Options:

    --all / -a
    Change the password for all lists.

    --domain=domain
    -d domain
    Change the password for all lists in the virtual domain `domain'. It
    is okay to give multiple -d options.

    --listname=listname
    -l listname
    Change the password only for the named list. It is okay to give
    multiple -l options.

    --password=newpassword
    -p newpassword
    Use the supplied plain text password `newpassword' as the new password
    for any lists that are being changed (as specified by the -a, -d, and
    -l options). If not given, lists will be assigned a randomly
    generated new password.

    --quiet / -q
    Don't notify list owners of the new password. You'll have to have
    some other way of letting the list owners know the new password
    (presumably out-of-band).

    --help / -h
    Print this help message and exit.
    ================================================
    that is all !
