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,
- 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
- -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.
