NAME

clone_member - Clone a Mailman mailing list subscriber address

SYNOPSIS

clone_member [options] fromoldaddr tonewaddr

DESCRIPTION

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.

OPTIONS

-l listname, --listname=listname Check and modify only the named mailing lists. If -l is not given, then all mail‐ ing 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.
