Re: Anyone got unsubscribed unvoluntarily lately?

Any chance you could get records of the full headers used on these fake
unsubscribe emails? Might be some commonality that's filterable.

It'd be a pain, though... somehow I doubt standard listserv software has
that capability.

Or perhaps you could require manual confirmation to unsubscribe?
