Summary: e-mail command confirmations should be optional

Initial Comment:
When we send an e-mail to change the member's 
options with a command (e.g. to subscribe/unsubscribe 
members), the confirmation of the commands should be 
optionnal.

This is useful particularly if we do a php script that 
sends the commands automatically from a post field. 
Then the member doesn't need to see all those e-mail 
commands.

This should be an optional command that would disable 
these confirmations for the whole list and all commands.

www.Sympa.org mailing list does this very well.

Thank you.
Daniel

In general, I think this is a bad idea because it allows
anyone to subscribe anyone else to a list by spoofing their
email address in an email command.

If you really want to open up subscribing without
confirmation, that feature is already available. Put

 ALLOW_OPEN_SUBSCRIBE = Yes

in mm_cfg.py and lists will have a None option for
subscribe_policy which will allow subscribe without
confirmation.
