[Mailman-Users] misleading description

Hi all,

I wonder if it is possible to change a description which appears on 
options page when you try to unsubscribe. Suppose you enter your email 
address at the general list information page. Then the options page gets 
displayed and you click the Unsubscribe button. There appears a message:

The confirmation email has been sent.

This is all right if you entered the right email address. But if by 
mistake you have entered an email address you are not subscribed with, 
the page still claims that a confirmation email has been sent but in 
fact it hasn't. I have run into this problem recently. I have pressed 
the Unsubscribe button a few times and waited for the confirmation 
email. However, it has never arrived. Only later did I realize I was 
trying to unsubscribe with a wrong email address.

I think a message like "No such address in our database" would be a lot 
more helpful. Do you think this could be changed?
