The mailman site password for hosted1 can be found it /root/mm_pass

The site password can be used to reset lists admin passwords if required.
Note: If you change the site password, please update this file.

When a user has requested their mailman password be reset go to the mailing list admin interface at:<MailingListName>
Use the site-admin password (see above) to log in, set the password to something. Then email the list admin the new password as well as asking them to change it.

If the server needs to be restarted mailman should come back on it's own. Otherwise each service on it can be restarted:
service mailman restart
service postfix restart
=== How to delete a mailing list ===
Delete a list, but keep the archives
sudo /usr/lib/mailman/bin/rmlist <listname>
Delete a list and its archives
sudo /usr/lib/mailman/bin/rmlist -a <listname>
