There is no way to unsubscribe a user via email without providing the
user's list password or without confirmation from the user or a list
admin/moderator depending on the list's unsubscribe_policy setting.

Because the password provided with the email subscribe command is the
user password to assign to this member. If you have done this, you have
exposed the list admin password to everyone you subscribed this way in
their list welcome message.
