Set up a test list to which you can repeatedly subscribe yourself.
Start with no custom templates - just your welcome message. Verify
that that works. Then copy the subscribeack.txt template to the
lists/<teslist>/en directory which you create. Verify that it still
works. Then make incremental changes to
lists/<teslist>/en/subscribeack.txt and tests until you find what
breaks it.

Note one possibility - you must have at least


in your subscribeack.txt template to receive your list welcome message.
If the subscribeack.txt template is empty, the welcome message will
have no message body which may be why it isn't delivered.
