If you have problems with subscriptions, please try sending mail to
the list owner directly. Failing that, send mail to me, personally.
If those both fail, send mail to the list, but chances are, if both the
first fail to get any results, no one on the regular list can help.
You should at least get a bounce or a notification of removal. The
proper method is to send a note to email@example.com that says:
If you are asking for removal from a machine other than the one from
which you subscribed, you must tack on the address under which you
subscribed. For example:
unsubscribe macbsd-general firstname.lastname@example.org
or some such. This will require some manual intervention by the list
owner, so it will take longer.
Try the first, if it doesn't work, try the latter. If you don't
remember which address you subscribed under, send the message
to email@example.com. It will return information about which
lists you're on under that name--it will also give the full address
that it has for you.
If you have any further problems, send private mail to me.
