Nope. The only thing required by is a valid email address. No
password, no subscribing first to the list via email etc.

When you first _post_ to a new list, you will be sent a verifying email
from to which you must reply, example:

Once you've responed & has verified that you are replying from
a valid email account, you'll receive a response back, example:

> You are now authorized to post to the
