You (or I ;) might be misunderstanding the feature.  Any message sent
to the -request, -join, or -leave address will get a confirmation
message indicating the results of the request.  This isn't

In addition, Mailman can send an autoresponse message to messages sent
to the -request address, and this is configurable via the
autorespond_requests variable.
