Well, not being (a/any) list subscriber, he may not be familair with list

Mr. Smith, maybe someone tried to subscribe, and entered a wrong email address
(maybe it was similar to yours), or maybe you have people that are playing a
prank on you, and assigning your address to lists without your knowledge, Or
someone has your address in a MAIL GROUP without your, or even their knowledge.
Either way, it is not the lists maintainers fault, and to remedy this, you will
probably have to follow the directions here:


I know I recently subscribed to the CVS list, and it had a double opt-in.
Whether or not the main list does (I don't think it did a couple years ago), I
don't know, but that would mean someone besides you would have needed access to
your account.

Or attempt to find out who is grouping your address. Unfortunately, these are
things we must deal with in this age. We are sorry you are getting these
messages, that you did not want.
