We have a customer who\'s login is no longer working to enter a mailman list administrative section. Is there a way we can reset that for them or see what it is so we can give to them?

Thanks!

There is a way to do this:
Run the /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/mmsitepass program, and then set the mail man site password. This password will allow you to access all the lists on the server. Then, go into the user\'s control panel, log in using that password, scroll to the bottom of the screen, and reset the user\'s password.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Sorry for taking so long to reply,

You can actually do it in WHM now ; )

:mad: I so really hate it when stuff just stops working and nobody has touched ANYTHING on the server but Brian thank you for that hot bit of information U RULE~
I ran this and it fixed the problem as suddenly none of our users could login to their mailing lists - however the downside was this resets ALL mailing list admin passwords for everydomain server wide to one password and cpanel is not able to modify them from the user control panel they must login via the "reset password" and then change it inside mailman......
This took place on two boxes of mine -
Fedora core 1 updated yesterday and RHE 3

I was startin to think mailman was trashed totally -- can you say WHEW ?

Command line scripts
This is a brief overview of the current crop of command line scripts available to the site administrator in the bin directory. For more details, run the script with the --help option, which will print out the usage synopsis. You must run these scripts from the bin directory in the Mailman installation location, default /usr/local/mailman.

add_members
Use this script to mass add members to a mailing list. Input files are plain text, with one address per line. Command line options allow you to add the addresses as digest or regular members, select whether various notification emails are sent, and choose which list to add the members to.
arch
Use this to rebuild a list's archive. This script can't be used to modify a list's raw mbox file, but once you've edited the mbox file some other way, you can use this script to regenerate the HTML version of the on-line archive.
