Check the setting for the list's data source -- it sounds like these ones need to be set to "include2" and aren't, like they're maybe set to "include" instead. I forget or have lost track of whether that's supposed to happen automatically in the upgrade or what, but you may need to do it manually.

One thing that I have just noticed - with a different list having the same issue. The owner of this list added a couple of people since the upgrade, when I look at the Review Subscribers page I see the new users have a value of "subscribed" in the Sources column - the ones that were converted over do not. The new ones alos have the checkbox that allows removal, the others do not.

We've just finished converting from Sympa 4.1.1 to 5.3.3 and overall it was a smooth process. I am now in "mop-up" mode - cleaning up misconfiged lists, etc. I've run into one issue which baffles me & hopefully there is an easy fix.

We have at least one list (and I suspect more) that doesn't allow unsubscribing users from it. The user, privileged list owner and listmaster can review the subscribers, but, none of us are able to remove a subscriber. When we try it we get: ERROR (del) - Not subscribed: address@concealed <mailto:address@concealed>

the entries for unsubscribe in the list config is "unsubscribe open_notify) - we are using the stock unsubscribe.open_notify for the scenari file:

title.gettext open with mail confirmation, owner is notified

!is_subscriber ([listname],[email]) smtp,md5,smime -> do_it,notify
!equal ([sender],[email]) smtp -> request_auth([email])
true() smtp,md5,smime -> do_it,notify

Are there any entries in the edit_list.conf file or anywhere else that might effect this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
