I think the answer is in:


How to create a customized welcome message that avoids mentioning how to 
post to the list:

  In Mailman 2.1.x you can customize the welcome message.  Create
  a directory lists/<yourlist>/en (assuming English :) and copy
  templates/subscribeack.txt to this directory.  Then edit this file 
  for your specific wording.  Mailman will use this specialized 
  template for the English welcome messages.
