Category: list administration
Group: Mailman 2.1
>Status: Closed
>Resolution: Accepted
Priority: 5
Submitted By: Grant Bowman (grantbow)
Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody)
Summary: Welcome Message

Initial Comment:
Problem: Currently, welcome message text can only be
prepended to a fixed subscribeack.txt.  Welcome
messages should be fully customizable by list
administrators that do not have command line/shell
access to their mailman installations, an arrangement
that is not unusual for hosted ISPs (like mine).

Solution: The following one line patch allows the use
of the existing editing capability with the
subscribeack.txt file.

Result: Mailman list administrators without shell
access will have more control and can customize welcome
messages to exactly meet the needs of their subscribers.

---

Note: If this is the right approach I would be happy to
follow up with additional patches to adjust the text of
the existing "HTML selection" page and other
appropriate places.

Note: I obtained this idea from this message by Todd
<Freedom_Lover at pobox.com> to Mailman-users and have
created this patch for the CVS version of mailman.
