Update: the problem is fixed.
Please do disregard to this issue. Go ahead and close it. Sorry for the bother.

Didn't realize resetting Mailman admin password could be done by these steps:
1. Go to my project main administration page (
2. In the "Features" box, click on Configure your Mailman Lists (
3. In the mail-list admin page, check the option "Reset List Admin Password:" and click submit.
4. Wait for the new password to be sent to me by e-mail.

Note: If the above doesn't work, may be for the mail list hasn't yet any members nor posted and approved messages (the administrator doesn't count as a member). Try to have at least one subscription and one message posted and approved and then go ahead with the password reset process. At least to me, it looked like a fresh password won't be recognized unless the reset request is made after the mail list has some activity.
