I could try to give some explaination but it would be like trying
to knit a string vest out of spagetti so instead I will only give
1) If you read bionet messages on USENET IGNORE confirm requests
2) If you have subscribed to the BIOSCI node at GENBANK, DARESBURY
or BMC IGNORE confirm requests.
3) If you are subscribed to the BIOSCI node at IRLEARN then you will
get a message from LISTSERV at IRLEARN asking you to CONFIRM your
subscription... so look at the mail address header to see where the
message is coming from.
This CONFIRM is a new feature to LISTSERV, and I already warned Dave
Kristofferson that something like this would happen. I have no idea
if this feature can be disabled... I fear it might be hard coded into
LISTSERV. Anyway I will scout around and see if there is any solution.
