I believe it is version 1.1, but I'm not positive.  I know it is not a 2.0
beta.  It could be 1.0 since it was installed some time ago.

How can I check to see what version it is?

Also, I just want to make sure that you understand that the web interface
would not let them log in, reporting that there was no member with their
address.  The admin interface also reported no members with that address.
If the user had simply changed to "nomail" instead of "unsubscribe", then
they would still be able to get into the management web page and they would
display in the admin interface as well.  Isn't this correct?

Thanks again!  Any further thoughts on what might be causing the problem
would be much appreciated.
