FAQ (2.1 to 3 Migration)

Frequently asked questions about migration from Mailmn 2.1 to 3 and related to their feature sets post migration.

1. List password and Moderator passwords are not working

Mailman 3 has a completely new account management system, none of the passwords from Mailman 2 will work with Mailman 3. Each user needs to sign up in Postorius for a new account to manage their memberships on all lists on a single instance.

Administrators and moderators also can sign up with their email accounts to manage their lists without having to share a common moderator or admin password like Mailman 2.1.
