NAME

       add_members - Add members to a Mailman mailing list from the command line.

SYNOPSIS

       add_members [-r <file>] [-d <file>] [-y <y|n>] [-w <y|n>] [-h] listname

DESCRIPTION

       Add  members  from  a file to a mailman list. Listname is the name of the Mailman list you
       are adding members to.  It must already exist.

OPTIONS

       -r file, --regular-members-file=file

              A file containing addresses of the members to be added, one address per line.  This
              list  of  people  become  non-digest  members.  If file is `-', read addresses from
              stdin. Note that -n/--non-digest-members-file  are  deprecated  synonyms  for  this
              option.

       -d file, --digest-members-file=file

              Similar to above, but these people become digest members.

       -a [y|n], --admin-notify=[y|n]

              Set  whether  or  not  to  send  the  list  administrators  a  notification  on the
              success/failure  of   these   subscriptions,   overriding   whatever   the   list's
              `admin_notify_mchanges' setting is.

       -w [y|n], --welcome-msg=[y|n]

              Set  whether or not to send the list members a welcome message, overriding whatever
              the list's `send_welcome_msg' setting is.

       -h, --help

              Print a help message and exit.

NOTES

       You must supply at least one of -r and -d options.  At most one of the files can be `-'.
