Title: Can I use email to talk to the Mailman list server?

Question: I would like to use email to interact with the Mailman list server.
Is that still possible?

Answer:

It is much easier to work with Mailman via the web interface. The majority of 
Mailman options are only available from the web interface. However, Mailman
does have a set of commands that can be used as follows:

Mailman will recognize the following commands (note that words in
"<>" are required and words in "[]" are optional. Do not include
the "<>" or "[]" in the actual commands):

    confirm <confirmation-string>
	Confirm an action.  The confirmation-string is required and should be
	supplied within the mailback confirmation notice.

    end
	Stop processing commands.  Use this if your mail program automatically
	adds a signature file.

    help
	Print this help message.

    info
	Get information about this mailing list.

    lists
	See a list of the public mailing lists on this GNU Mailman server.

    password [<oldpassword> <newpassword>] [address=<address>]
	Retrieve or change your password.  With no arguments, this returns
	your current password.  With arguments <oldpassword> and <newpassword>
	you can change your password.

	If you're posting from an address other than your membership address,
	specify your membership address with `address=<address>' (no brackets
	around the email address, and no quotes!).  Note that in this case the
	response is always sent to the subscribed address.

    set ...
	Set or view your membership options.

	Use `set help' (without the quotes) to get a more detailed list of the
	options you can change.

	Use `set show' (without the quotes) to view your current option
	settings.

    subscribe [password] [digest|nodigest] [address=<address>]
	Subscribe to this mailing list.  Your password must be given to
	unsubscribe or change your options, but if you omit the password, one
	will be generated for you.  

	The next argument may be either: `nodigest' or `digest' (no quotes!).
	If you wish to subscribe an address other than the address you sent
	this request from, you may specify `address=<address>' (no brackets
	around the email address, and no quotes!)

    unsubscribe [password] [address=<address>]
	Unsubscribe from the mailing list.  If given, your Mailman list 
	password (NOT your UW NetID password!) must match your current 
	password for the list.  If omitted, a confirmation email will be sent
	to the unsubscribing address. If you wish to unsubscribe an address
	other than the address you sent this request from, you may specify
	`address=<address>' (no brackets around the email address, and no
	quotes!)

    who password
	See everyone who is on this mailing list.  The roster is limited to
	list administrators and moderators only; you must supply the list
	admin or moderator password to retrieve the roster.

Commands should be sent to <listname>-request@nmsu.edu (where <listname> 
is replaced with the name of the list).
