Mailman re-enables delivery when your address changes.

Bug #266383 reported by Lcreighton on 2007-01-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
GNU Mailman

Bug Description

My email address changed. I went to a list on
(edu-sig) where I am subscribed, and changed my address
to reflect the new address. I then clicked the box to
change this globally. I immediately started receiving
mail messages from the high-volume list, python-list
which is also on even though I have disabled
the delivery there. I had to disable this by hand.

I'm running a stable 2.1 but I suspect this will be
a bug everywhere.

Hmmm, edu-sig is 2.1.9 Maybe that is not the stable version? I forget
which is which.

This has been fixed in SVN for Mailman 2.1.10 and 2.2.

Note that if delivery was disabled by bounce, it will still be enabled for
the new address, but not if it was disabled by admin or user.
