      I'd look at hacking the 'Welcome to the "foobar" list' e-mail.  If 
you don't show them the configuration page, they won't go there.  I've not 
dealt with that file, but as it's in templates it should be easy.  You will 
find the original in <prefix>/mailman/templates/en/subscribeack.txt  . Copy 
that to the en directory (you many have to create it) of the list ( 
<prefix>/mailman/lists/<LISTNAME>/en) and modify as needed.  Restart 
mailman, and away you go.
