Tell them to get rid of such a broken MUA that they can't control the
formatting. If they won't quit using such beasts or controlling the MUA
behavior, maybe it's time to explain the benefits program.

Try turning off mungedomain. The code in majordomo.pl:addr_match isn't
very robust when $partial==2 (mungedomain is on), so when it doesn't
find an '@' in the address it fails the match without ever comparing
it to anything. That allows it to subscribe identical non-addresses
multiple times and prevents you from unsubscribing them.
