Here is another message from my new friend Listar:
----------------------------------------
>> unsubscribe sostrovs at eng.kns.com
Does not appear to be a valid unsubscribe command.  No list in present
context.  To see the lists available on this machine, send Listar
the command 'lists'.

Valid command was found in subject field, body won't be checked for further
commands.
