But users can not subscribed when replying to the email.  I can't find any errors in the log files.  I've tried just replying to the email.  I've tried removing the RE: in the reply.  I've also tried just a plain email with the confim in the subject line.  Can anyone give me pointers as to where I can look or maybe suggestions on what to check to fix this problem??

Do you get any kind of 'results of your email commands' reply?

Are you using some brain dead Microsoft email client that replies to
the envelope sender and not the From:?

What happens if you compose a totally new mail To: the list-request at ...
address with 'confirm' and the 'token' copied exactly into the subject
of the new mail?
