[Mailman-Users] Query on editing headers and confirmation messages

I am setting up a announce-only list which is sitting on my LAN behind a
firewall. I've got a couple of queries which I haven't been able to find
answer for on the FAQ: I am not allowing access to the web interface so
the only way a subscriber can unsub is via email. I'd like to edit the
RFC2389 header info if possible:

To:  test at lists.domain.co.uk 
From:  test at lists.domain.co.uk 
Reply-To:  test-unsubscribe at lists.domain.co.uk, test at lists.domain.co.uk 
List-Unsubscribe:  http://server.domain.co.uk/mailman/listinfo/test
~delete this entry~,
mailto:test-request at lists.domain.co.uk?subject=unsubscribe  ~keep this~
List-Archive:  http://lists.domain.co.uk/pipermail/test ~delete this
List-Post:  mailto:test at lists.domain.co.uk 
List-Help:  mailto:test-request at lists.domain.co.uk?subject=help 
List-Subscribe:  http://server.domain.co.uk/mailman/listinfo/test,
~delete this entry~

How would I go about doing this?  Worse case I know that I can prevent
the header info being sent out but this seems to prevent delivery.

I also need to edit the confirmation message and remove the web address.
Do I just need to edit the unsub.txt in /templates/en?

Finally, one of the problems we are going to have to overcome is
maintaining our lists (we'd like to keep a record of unsubscribers
hopefully).  The lists are updated by requests on our website and also
manual data entry, then imported.  I've seen that I can use the dumpdb
command to export member list however I don't appear to have a db file -
it's a pck file and I can't seem to find any packages that can view
these files.  Can I still use the db command?
