    Hi,

    Is it possible to export a mailman list of email addresses?

    If so, how would you do it?

    Thanks!

    I googled for the answer but came up short, you might jump on the Mailman support mailing list and ask your question directly to the community.

    You can get a list of the addresses fairly easy:

    ~mailman/bin/list_members MAILLISTNAME


    where maillist name is the name of the mailing list that you want the list of email addresses for.

    yep it executes the list_members file that is in the mailman home directories bin folder.

    Can you tell me how I could copy this whole list?

    I used the | less command but still copying one page at a time.

    Easy way is to tell it to write to a file

    ~mailman/bin/list_members -o EMAILS.TXT MAILLISTNAME

    Then you can simply download it to your main computer or similar using an scp/ftp client so that you can access it from any text editor

    Thank you so much!

    I just tried this and it worked great and certainly saved me a bunch of time.
