Thanks for your reply.
The issue is that only employees of member companies shall be able to
join any of the mailing lists.
In the first step we approve only subscriptions with email accounts from
a member company. Someone with a subscription can then later on change
his mail address to one of another company that might not be a member
company of our organization. We would like to approve such changes or
disable this option.
