Tmb fixed it for me. And if I'd known in advance, I would have done,
what you suggested.
But actually this should not happen.
Sympa should change the mail address as well, when you do change it on
I'm not sure about sympa's internals, but perhaps identity should fix
the sympa database, when changing the email address.
I think, the email addresses are stored in a user table in sympa's db
which is joined to the rest of the tables, if needed.
So it would be just one update statement, that needs to be done.
But as I said, I neither know sympa nor identity...
