6.2 How do I change my password?

Warning: Do NOT use a valuable password, since this password may be mailed to you in plain text.

From the web interface:

  1. Log in to your member options page. (See Section 3.1 for instructions on how to do this.)

  2. Look for the password changing boxes on the right-hand side of the page and enter your new password in the appropriate boxes, then press the button marked "Change My Password."

This can also be changed for multiple lists at the same time if you are subscribed to more than one list on the same domain. See Section 10.1 for information about changing settings globally.

From the email interface:

  1. Send a mail to with the command password $<$OLDPASSWORD$>$ $<$NEWPASSWORD$>$.

    Commands can appear in either the body or the subject of the message. (See Section 3.2 for more information about sending mail commands.)

    If you are not sending mail from your membership address, you can also specify this address with address=$<$ADDRESS$>$ after $<$NEWPASSWORD$>$.

    For example, if wanted to change her mylist password from zirc to miko, but she was sending mail from her work address , she could send a message to with the subject set to password zirc miko address=kathy@here.com.
