EXAMPLE:
configset listname subscribe_policy = closed


WARNING: Using "open" alone is not safe: Many mail tools allow easy
         forgery of the "From" field, so an "open" policy allows
         anyone to subscribe anyone else to your list! The "auto"
         setting allows the same thing without even faking the From
         field. The default setting (open+confirm) allows anyone to
         start the process, but it must be confirmed by the 'victim'.

The subscribe_policy configuration setting is used to restrict access
to the subscribe command.

The following eight values are supported:

 auto            Anyone can use the subscribe command for any address.

 auto+confirm    Anyone can use the subscribe command for any address,
                 but the command must be confirmed by the person at
                 the affected address.

 auto+password   Anyone can use the subscribe command for any address,
                 but the person issuing the command must supply a
                 personal password.

 open            Anyone can use the subscribe command for her own
                 address.  If anyone attempts to use the subscribe
                 command for a different address, the approval of
                 the list moderators will be required.

 open+confirm    Anyone can use the subscribe command for her own
                 address.  If anyone attempts to use the subscribe
                 command for a different address, the approval of
                 the list moderators will be required.  The command
                 must be confirmed by the person at the affected
                 address.

 open+password   Anyone can use the subscribe command for her own
                 address.  If anyone attempts to use the subscribe
                 command for a different address, the approval of
                 the list moderators will be required.  The person
                 issuing the command must supply a personal password.

 closed          Anyone can use the subscribe command for any address,
                 but the approval of the list moderators is required.

 closed+confirm  Anyone can use the subscribe command for any address,
                 but the approval of the person at the affected address
                 and the list moderators is required.

This setting determines who can use the subscribe command to participate
in a mailing list.  It has no effect upon auxiliary lists.

An administrative password can be used to issue the subscribe command,
regardless of the value of this setting.

Any rules in the access_rules setting related to the subscribe command
will take precedence over the value of this setting.
