Howto unsubscribe from mailinglist?

hi,

i don’t know if this is the right forum but i have a problem where i can’t find a solution. i have a suse mailinglist subscribed and can’t get it unsubscribed. my two obstacles are:

  • how do i find out to which of my (forwarded) adresses it is sent, the to:-header only shows opensuse-security-announce@opensuse.org.
  • how do i unsubscribe it then without forging my from-header?

regards

Mailinglists - openSUSE try this…

thanks, i already tried it. this only brings the message:

“You are not subscribed to this list, so you cannot unsubscribe.”

the mailing-list is forwarded to my main email and i don’t know anymore which is the original email. so how do i find out to which email it is sent?

> “You are not subscribed to this list, so you cannot unsubscribe.”

obviously, you would not want someone else to unsubscribe you (just to
aggravate you), right?

to prevent that you must be able to send an email FROM the address
that the list is mailed to…

so, you need to go to all of your mail accounts and send an
unsubscribe from each one…until you stumble on the correct account
and get a unsubscribe confirmation (instead of the “you are not
subscribed” you get now)…

[bummer, i know…but, next time remember the account used]

If you remember something about “you” ;-), you can also contact the “owner”
of the list and ask for a manual removal:
