Exit status and failed decryption of session key

I am tired of receiving dozens of messages of this list.
I tried many times to unsubscribe. The mailing system does not work
and the owner of the list (Lord of the Lists <firstname.lastname@example.org>)
me that I am not subscribed. It appears now to me as harassment.
If everybody from the list reads this message he will probably
mistake and maybe do his duty.
