Do you mean the message for the user to confirm before being subscribed
or the welcome message after subscription is completed?

The former is Privacy Options...->Subscription rules->subscribe_policy;
the latter is GeneralOptions->welcome_message.

Are the cron jobs running?. Is General Options->send_reminders on for
all the lists.
