Wouldn’t that depend on the version of mailman being used? If we are on the latest version then I am sure the issue would be resolved no?

    I think that's a good idea, although it's only a partial solution. Mailman sends password reminders unencrypted anyway, and presumably therefore doesn't store the passwords as hashes or whatever.
