That will result in two subscribe requests.

Send an email without any commands, e.g. with 

Subject: this is a test email

and a few lines in the body, not commands, to the list-request address.
You should receive a "results of your email commands" message back to
the address you send from. Do you? If not, there is some issue with
mail to the -request address.
