You can't do it in the web interface.

The reminder comes from a template named cronpass.txt. This can be
edited and an edited version (for each relevant language) installed on
a per list, per domain or hostwide basis, but it requires shell (or
maybe ftp) access to the Mailman installation. See
for details of where modified templates are installed.

Since this change can be made for your list or domain only, you may be
able to convince the hosting provider to give you a copy of the
template(s) (or you could get it from
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/mailman/mailman/templates/) and
install your edited template(s) in the appropriate place(s).
