Export Mailman Mailing List


MailMan does not have a built in feature to export a Mailing list. However there are a few work arounds.

Obtaining your user list

Unfortunately there is not a way to export a file containing the list but you can get the e-mails by hand with a little work. Below are the steps you would need to take:

  1. Login to your Justhost.com control panel
  2. Under the mail category, click on "Basic Mailing Lists"
  3. Click on the "Modify" link next to the mailing list you would like to export from
  4. Enter password and enter administration page
  5. Click on the "Go to the general list information page" on the right of the screen
  6. Click on "view subscriber list" button. This is near the bottom of the page.
  7. Cut and paste the column(s) one column at a time into a text editor.
  8. Use your text editor's "Find and Replace" function and replace all " at " (no quotes but keep spaces) and replace with a @.

You now have your list of e-mail addresses from the mailing list.

Optional step: use you text editor's replace option to replace or remove any unwanted * ( or ) characters that are in the list that you copied.

Other Offcial Methods

There are a few other ways you can obtain your user list. You can see these other methods at the offical MailMan wiki, How do I extract (export) a list of my list's members (subscribers)?
