Description: The modification provides a simple way for an administrator to turn off the mailings to a specific user. Typically this is done after receiving bounced messages.
This change adds a new selection to the user modification options available to an administrator. Once a user has been selected from the admin show/edit users page, a list of options is displayed. That list includes functions such as editing the user's profile and banning the user. The new option ("Cancel mailings") clears all the selected user's subscriptions and the "email replies" and other e-mail flags.
After clearing the flags, a private message is sent to the user informing him/her of the action.

I was thinking that might be a good idea for version 2. Actually, after using the script a short time, most of the email bounces have been reduced to only a few. I'm at a point where it might not be a good investment of time. Of course, our site has only about 4000 users. Still, it would make the modification a more complete solution.
