Actually, I meant unsubscribe_policy, but that isn't it anyway..

There is an issue with subscribe_policy, but it doesn't impact your
present issue. It seems the policy is likely set to None, but the
mm_cfg option ALLOW_OPEN_SUBSCRIBE is set to No so the option doesn't
appear on the page. Unless you really want open subscription without
confirmation, I suggest setting the option you do want.

The admin Autoresponder page has autorespond_requests set to Yes,
w/discard so the response in autoresponse_request_text is sent and the
request is discarded.
