         Signaling One-Click Functionality for List Email Headers

Abstract

   This document describes a method for signaling a one-click function    for the List-Unsubscribe email header field.  The need for this    arises out of the actuality that mail software sometimes fetches URLs    in mail header fields, and thereby accidentally triggers    unsubscriptions in the case of the List-Unsubscribe header field.
