As ours does.  However, if you absolutely need to unsubscribe from
your new address, that is no problem.  What happens is that I get
a message asking if I approve of this unsubscription.  Usually,
I can see that ther persons user name is similar, and approve it
right away.  This is far easier than me having to track down which
address is bad.
