Hi, @minhhuy you still have control of the email account associated with that list, right? I can force a password reset for you.

I suggest if you could find a trusted person to act as a second administrator? I think the policy of having 2 admins on every mailing list is a good idea to prevent these issues.

hello @jcrespo : yes, I still using and accessing to my email linked for that list admin account. If you need verification, you can send a email for that admin list, and I will write down here what you sent, or any other way to help confirming that I am owning that email account.

And yes, I understand about the importance of have two admin, but the last time when I ask, no one willing to handle this list. I will try to find another trusted member to manage this list this time. Thanks a lot!

no one willing to handle this list

I understand 100% it can be difficult if the community is small, but I had to ask :-D.

Will try to reset it and report back in a second.

I've reset it already, let me know when you receive it and change the password to something else (mail is not a very secure method of sending passwords).

hello @jcrespo : I received your email, login successfully and already changed to another password. Really thanks for your quick help. I will appoint another admin as soon as possible.
