You can test this suggestion by asking for a password reminder from the https site. If you do get an email that says what your password is, then you are still subscribed.

I actually asked the website to send me a password reminder to an account that is not subscribed. Although it says that "A reminder of your password has been emailed to you" on the website, the account in question did not receive any emails.
