The unregister command will remove one or more e-mail addresses from the
registration database.  All of the subscriptions and aliases belonging
to an address that is unregistered will be removed automatically.

The simplest way for you to unregister is to send the following command
in the body of an e-mail message to Majordomo@GreatCircle.COM:
(A confirmation message may be sent to your e-mail address.)

If the address from which you are sending the message is different from
the address that is registered, use the following command:
  unregister ADDRESS
(Substitute the e-mail address you wish to unregister for ADDRESS.)

                        Notes for administrators

Farewell messages
The "farewell" configuration setting determines whether or not a
farewell message will be sent by default.  If the farewell setting is
set to "yes", Majordomo will send a farewell message to each address
that is removed from the list unless the "nofarewell" command mode is
used.  If the farewell setting is set to "no", a farewell message will
be sent only if the "farewell" command mode is used.  The contents of
the farewell message are determined by the "farewell_files"
configuration setting.  See "help configset_farewell" and 
"help configset_farewell_files" for more details.

A farewell message will also be sent for each subscription that is
removed, but only for lists whose "farewell" setting is enabled, or
if the "farewell" command mode is used.

If the "pattern" command mode is used, you must specify a pattern on the
command line.  See "help patterns" for an introduction Majordomo
matching pattern.  A domain or site administrative password is required
to use the "pattern" mode.  The "regex" mode is identical to the
"pattern" mode.

If the "allmatching" command mode is also used, every address that
matches the pattern will be unregistered.  Otherwise, only the
first address that matches the pattern will be removed.

Pattern examples
The following command will remove the first address that matches
"" from the registry:


The following command will remove every address that matches
"" from the registry:


The following command will remove all of the addresses from the
registration database, along with all of their subscriptions and

  unregister-pattern-allmatching ALL

Canonical Addresses
Each address has an original and a canonical form.  Usually these
addresses are the same, but if the original address (the one that was
used to subscribe to a mailing list or register) is an alias for another
address, the latter address is the canonical address.

When the "pattern" mode is used, the canonical addresses are compared to
the pattern.  This may cause some surprising results when an original
address that does not match the pattern is reported to have been

Here documents
List owners can unregister more than one address or pattern using a
"here document".  For example, to unregister the addresses
"" and "", a domain administrator could use
the following command:

unregister <<ABC

See "help here_document" for more details.

It is only possible to unregister an invalid address using the
"pattern" or "regex" command mode.  Registered addresses can become
invalid, for example, if the GLOBAL configuration settings that affect
the validity of e-mail addresses are made stricter.

Every Majordomo command supports five administrative command modes.
These modes are:
  noinform  - Do not mail a notice to the list owners.
  nolog     - Do not record this command in the log.
  nomessage - Do not mail the results if the "default user" command
              has been used.  See "help default" for more information.
  quiet     - Do not send a notice if the command is delayed.
  rule      - Act as if the "access_password_override" configuration
              setting were turned off.
The noinform, nolog, nomessage, and rule modes require the use of an
administrative password.  For more details, see the "Administrative
command modes" section of the "help admin_commands" document.
