I currently manage a mailing list hosted on a mailman service.

I'd like to be able to add new users to this mailing list by sending an appropriate email to the mailman service. Is there a tool for that?

Specific commands can be sent to: (note the -request appended to the list name)

The mail should have no subject and the following body:

   subscribe [password] [digest|nodigest] [address=<>]

<> fields are mandatory, [] fields are optional.
