If you're using 2.0.5 or previous this text might not be in a 
template.  The easiest (IMHO) way to find this text from the command line 
is to use the *nix tool grep.  `man grep` for details.  This tool is a 
monster so take your time to read up on it.  Here's a command to get you 
started. Start in your mailman install directory.

grep -re "Your request has been forwarded to the list administrator for 
approval" ./templates

Replace "./templates" with any other directory that you want too look in 
including "./" if you like.

The output will show each line of each file that matches your search string.
