[Mailman-Users] using email to subscribe and unsubscribe users

could be a cpanel issue, but I'm not sure.  I broke down and moved my site
to the server that allows Mailman so I'm not doing anything funny with MX
records on this list.  My list name is "list" and I am sending emails to "
list-request at domain.org" with the subject "subscribe address=
email at domain.com" <- I put that into the body as well just to be sure.  They
just disappear.  I have it set to confirm and approve, but I do not see any
emails coming to either the subscriber's address or admin address.  good
catch on the airplane reference
