This utility is used to unsubscribe people from the specified mailinglist. It will remove the specified email address from every file in the <listdir>/subscribers.d/, <listdir>/digesters.d/ and <listdir>/nomailsubs.d/ directories (or if the -d, -n or -N switch is given, only the one relevant directory).

Unless the -U switch is used it will switch its user id to the user id owning the list directory. This is done to make sure that new files created are having correct permissions.

Normally a mail is sent to the person being unsubscribed if the address is not subscribed to the list. If the -s switch is used such a mail will not be sent.

When neither -c nor -C is specified, unsubscription happens silently from the point of view of the subscriber. When -q is specified, unsubscription happens silently from the point of view of the list owner. Use of -s is recommended to ensure you don't spam unsubscribed addresses by accident.
