If it was sent to sostrovs at kns.com it means that sostrovs at kns.com appeared in 
your From: header. By typing unsubscribe without an address, Listar will get 
the email address from your From: header and attempt to unsubscribe that one.

And Listar was right: sostrovs at kns.com is not subscribed to alfs-discuss. 
sostrovs at eng.kns.com is though.

So two options:
1) Change From: header
2) type in subject: unsubscribe sostrovs at eng.kns.com
