How to say “list member”

Those of us on many listservs aka mailing lists aka email usually say “list members” to refer to the members of the mailing list or group. Spanish uses ’listero’. I notice Urdu uses ’listvala’ – the suffix -vala being the word spelled in traditional, Kiplingesque literature as ’wallah’. (interestingly, it also serves as a suffix carrying the meaning “about to…”; housevale [gharvale] are ’household members’). I’ve tried ’listnik’ for Russian. Does anyone have examples from other languages of words serving this meaning?
