Thanks Mark,

I was trying to figure out how to edit the email that goes out after a 
subscription is accepted, to take out the info on how to post to the 
list since I am creating an announce only list. And I managed to get it 
out of the templates folder.
Could you point me in the right direction on how to edit that email.
