cc65 knows how to translate several traditional control-character names:
(These are the translations for CBM targets.)
'\a' -- alert:  beep on C128
'\b' -- backspace:  delete
'\f' -- form-feed:  clear-screen (!!)
'\n' -- new-line:  line-feed in conio, return-with-line-feed in stdio
'\r' -- carriage-return:  return-without-line-feed in conio, usually
        ignored in stdio
'\t' -- TAB

the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
