From all you wrote it seems to be an issue of users not being
authenticated to do the deleting on FoxNotifyLists/UserGroupA.

You don't mention the settings for $FoxAuth. $FoxAuth is set to
'edit' by default, meaning users need 'edit' access to a target page
in order to have Fox change something.

If you lock FoxNotifyLists/UserGroupA to be edited only by users in
an @admin group then general members will not be able to add or
delete anything on FoxNotifyLists/UserGroupA, if $FoxAuth = 'edit';

But you say adding email adresses works correctly, only deleting does
not. So there may be another issue. For testing this, put on
FoxNotifyLists/UserGroupA a (:foxmessage:) markup to get any error

in the form for the tests. If you have a redirect parameter set, then
you will never see any feedback messages, as they get lost in the
