Can you provide steps of how you set up Mailman on the different providers since it looks like you are using some type of packaged or managed service which is providing features that are not part of the stock Mailman and may get in the way of what you are trying to do.  It is difficult to provide support on here especially if there are other modules being used to provide extra site protection etc.

I'm still working on the auto-submission stuff.  I set up another test mailing list, this one on Bluehost.  First, I compared the HTML of the members/unsubscribe page and they are *identical* [except for having different URLs for the links to the various pages].

And I tried my program on the Bluehost version and I was greeted with 

Not Acceptable!</title></head><body><h1>Not
Acceptable!</h1><p>An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security.<

OK, next step is to do a complete packet-capture of the transactions with Dreamhost and wireshark it to see what is strange versus what my program is doing...

....and mailman's forms seemed so simple...:o)
