How do I get a list of subscribers to my mailman list?

To get a list of subscribers, visit your lists "listinfo" page. The listinfo page can be accessed by a URL like the following:

https://domain-name/mailman/listinfo/list-name

Replace domain name with the domain name of your list (for example: lists.mayfirst.org or lists.people-link.net). Replace the list-name with the name of your list.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your email address and password.

Note: if your list is configured so that only admins have access to the subscriber list, then you will need to enter an admin email and password. Otherwise, you will need to enter a subscriber's email address and password.

Also Note: if your email address are printed in the form user at domain dot org and you want them listed normally, then:

  • Login into your mailman web admin page
  • Click Privacy Options
  • Change the last option, which read "Show member addresses so they're not directly recognizable as email addresses?" to: no.

Alternate option

Alternatively (and less securely) you can send an email message to the request address of your list (your request address is: listname-request@… or listname-request@… with "listname" replaced with your actual listname, like support-request@… if your listname was called "support"). For the subject line use:

who <password>

Replace <password> with your list password.

After issuing this command, please change your password!
