I'm trying to find out who unsubscribed a specific email from a list in mailman. I've found where the user was removed in /var/log/mailman/subscribe..But it just says "deleted user@company.net web confirmation".

Is there another place to look where I can see if the admin of the list removed this user..They're, of course, saying they didn't and something is magically removing the user..I thought it was an auto unsubscribe b/c of bounces or something similar..But I see entries with the auto unsubscribe but not by the user I'm looking for..

Out of the box there are no other logfiles besides the ones you found. Of course, in case of web access you could check the web server logs.

Here is a list of actions and corresponding logfile entries from /var/log/mailman/subscribe

$ echo "nobody@example.net" | add_members -r - test-l
Nov 07 16:35:27 2009 (22151) test-l: new nobody@example.net,

$ echo "nobody@example.net" | add_members -r - --admin-notify=n test-l
Nov 07 16:35:27 2009 (22151) test-l: new nobody@example.net,

$ remove_members test-l nobody@example.net
Nov 07 16:38:52 2009 (22491) test-l: deleted nobody@example.net; bin/remove_members

$ remove_members --noadminack test-l nobody@example.net
Nov 07 16:39:57 2009 (22630) test-l: deleted nobody@example.net; bin/remove_members

# admin selected "unsub" from membership list page
Nov 07 16:41:45 2009 (23156) test-l: deleted nobody@example.net; member mgt page

# unsubscribed by means of mass removal page
Nov 07 16:42:22 2009 (23259) test-l: deleted nobody@example.net; admin mass unsub

# user unsubscribed by means of URL confirmation
Nov 07 16:44:59 2009 (23422) test-l: deleted nobody@example.net; web confirmation

# user unsubscribed by means of e-mail confirmation
Nov 07 16:47:03 2009 (10384) test-l: deleted nobody@example.net; email confirmation

This is from a Mailman 2.1.9 run on a Debian Etch. $ stands for a command prompt. HTH.
