If it is your Mailman installation, look at the Defaults.py/mm_cfg.py
variables MIME_DIGEST_KEEP_HEADERS and PLAIN_DIGEST_KEEP_HEADERS for
controlling which individual message headers appear in digests.
for information about editing templates. The 'boilerplate' at the
beginning of the digest is the masthead.txt template.

Todd is essentially correct here, but see

This is not the way it's supposed to work. The autoresponses from
"Should Mailman send an auto-response to mailing list posters?" are
completely independent of the "Send mail to poster when their posting
is held for approval?" setting.
Are you sure you're not getting confused by the
autoresponse_graceperiod setting (Number of days between
auto-responses to either the mailing list or -request/-owner address
from the same poster.)?
