The password in the email unsubscribe command must be the password of
the user being unsubscribed. The list admin password is not acceptable
in this context.

I don't know why it would work for some addresses and not others unless
the password provided for the ones that worked was actually the user's
password or the ones that worked were for lists for which unsubscribe
requires admin approval in which case the password is ignored.
