If you send an email to unsubscribe from a list and it doesn't work, you may have subscribed under a different email address. Take a look at message from list to see were it was sent. If it was sent to another email address (lots of people have more than one) you may have to send a blank email from that address to unsubscribe.
Egroups - This has merged with Yahoo groups. See that section for more information.
Listbot - Listbot is no more. It has been shut down.
Onelist - This has merged with Yahoo groups. See that section for more information.
Smartgroups - To remove yourself from one of these lists, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Groupname is name of smartgroup. You can also log in and unsubscribe (or change your email settings) from web.
Topica - To unsubscribe from a Topica email list, scroll down to bottom of email. Simply click unsubscribe list. Alternately, you can send an email to specified address. It does not matter what email contains. Do not reply to message that you received, as this will simply go to person who posted and will NOT unsubscribe you.
Various message boards - The unsubscribe function varies, but is virtually always explained at bottom of message. I've found that most message boards use a clickable link (this is because they are frequently installed on web sites which do not allow for returned email messages). Sometimes message boards require you to log in and change your settings to stop receiving emails.
Yahoo Groups - Unsubscribing from egroups is easy, but instructions are often hidden or missing entirely. This seems to be especially true of digest form of lists. To unsubscribe, simply take name of egroup (usually in subject surrounded by square brackets) and create an email address of that name followed by "-email@example.com". For example, to unsubscribe from "[toms-list]" send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
