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 `-'.
