Note that this may not necessarily work, as I described in a message I
just sent to the list.  It doesn't matter what address he's ultimately
receiving mail at, it matters what address the list is sending him
mail at.  And for various reasons, those may not be the same.  The
list may receive the above, look for, not
find it as a subscribed address, and just give up (or give some error
message).  To find out what address to plug into the above address,
one needs to look for a header like:

Return-Path: <>

Then, take the part between the number (in this case 47506) and the
'@' and plug that into the tomcat-user-unsubscribe address.
