Sympa, used by Mandriva, does all of its functions, sub, unsub, etc, by
email from 'you' to the mail server.

I 'feel', if you will, a desperation in most of the 'please unsub me'
posts. Perhaps overwelmed by the volume or maybe a limited download
quota. They never come back or mention success so I guess they get off
the list.

I have, in the past, privately emailed help. But I stopped after two
users accused me of stealing their email address and spamming them.  ;-)

Have a nice day.
