First, if you sent out a mass email marketing flyer and are getting lots 
of complaints, it sounds like you are probably a spammer. A well-managed 
mailing list, in general, had only subscribers who have opted-in and 
confirmed the opt-in. If people are immediately wanting to unsubscribe, it 
does not sound like it was confirmed opt-in.

But if you're not a spammer, you are apparently at the wrong place. This 
mailing list is about Mailman. You asked about Listserv(tm) which is a 
"competing" mailing list manager.

Now on the chance that you really are asking about Mailman and said 
Listserv because you think like way too many people that listserv is just 
a generic term for a mailing list manager rather than someone's 
trademarked brand name, Mailman just sends on what it is sent. If you want 
an unsunscribe button, you need to send your message as HTML and design it 
into the HTML. Mailman does send mailing list management headers in each 
message (always? or does that need to be turned on? I'm not sure) but that 
requires the reader to have an e-mail client that recognizes the headers 
and not all do.

Also, this list is about the Mailman software itself. We have no access to 
the site running your list. You need to contact your site administrator 
about making chnages to your site.
