[Mailman-Users] Unsubscribing not made easy?

Hi all

I have a Mailman 2.1.27 installation on cPanel 76.0.7. 

Today a subscriber of a list sent an empty email trying to unsubscribe. He addressed the message to the list address <listname at domain.com>, with the subject "unsubscribe", and else nothing. But instead of his unsubsciption being processed, Mailman sent a message to the kist owners telling us to approve or reject the message. 

As a reason it was mentioned "message might contain mailman commands". 

Of course, at the end of each list message a footer is added mentioning the <listname-requests at domain.com> address - but isn't it a standard alternative procedure to unsubscibe using the command in the subject field of an else empty message? 

Is there anything I could do with the list configuration to correct the behaviour? 

Thank you
