I have also been unscribed on 4 or 5 occasions over the last couple of years,
usually when my company's net is down for several hours, but certainly less
than 24 hours.  It seems that the mail system should try somewhat harder before
it drops someone from the list. By the way the FreeBSD mail server usually
drops me at the same time, so I assume it is a freature of the software
being used, not a local policy.
