Thanks, Jon. One thing, however: there is no password involved here, 
because I am manually inputting a list of email addresses from 
customers who have been in my database before I started using mailman.

So, for email addresses that have not be subscribed by the user, but 
manually inputted by the admin, how do these guys unsubscribe?
