FWIW, Mailman 2.1 will have a much simpler unsubscribe recipe that,
while not disabling passwords, will make them unnecessary for
- via email:
1. Member sends a message to mylist-leave at dom.ain
2. Mailman sends a confirmation message containing a cookie in Subject:
3. Member responds to confirmation, keeping Subject: intact
4. Mailman unsubscribes them
- via web
1. Member visits http://firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Member clicks on Unsubscribe button
3. Go to step 2 above
Note that the confirmation also contains a url, which the user can
click on instead of replying. This puts up a confirmation page with
two buttons: unsubscribe, or cancel the unsubscription request.
