There is a parameter you can set in mm_cfg.py


Currently this only affects invitations, not subscription request

For invitations, it changes

Subject: confirm 4ddb7163459cbaed6c1055e2bad937e8fbf40126

I think that currently the only way to get this for confirmations is to
hack the code.

The subscription confirmation is a template named verify.txt. See the

Article 4.48 for information on installing modified templates on a
per-list, per-virtual domain or site wide basis.
