       clone_member - Clone a Mailman mailing list subscriber address


       clone_member [options] fromoldaddr tonewaddr


       Cloning  a  member  address  means  that  a  new member will be added who has all the same
       options and passwords as the original member address.  Note that this operation is  fairly
       trusting  of  the  user who runs it -- it does no verification to the new address, it does
       not send out a welcome message, etc.

       The existing member's subscription is usually not modified in any way.   If  you  want  to
       remove  the  old  address,  use  the  -r  flag.  If you also want to change any list admin
       addresses, use the -a flag.


       -l listname, --listname=listname
              Check and modify only the named mailing lists.   If  -l  is  not  given,  then  all
              mailing lists are scanned from the address.  Multiple -l options can be supplied.

       -r, --remove
              Remove the old address from the mailing list after it's been cloned.

       -a, --admin
              Scan the list admin addresses for the old address, and clone or change them too.

       -q, --quiet
              Do the modifications quietly.

       -n, --nomodify
              Print what would be done, but don't actually do it.  Inhibits the 0

       fromoldaddr  (`from  old  address')  is  the  old address of the user.  tonewaddr (`to new
       address') is the new address of the user.
