Thanks for the response. You say that 2.1.2 provides what I am asking for 
but in the privacy options I only find the option for having a confirmation 
message sent for "subscribing" but not for "unsubscribing" members. Perhaps 
you can enlighten me where you find the option to verify that an 
unsubscribe request actually came from the member itself (confirmation)?

thanks, Nils
