The above text is not from an invitation, it is from a subscription
request from the listinfo page. xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address that
the request came from and is included for tracing in case the request
was not initiated be the subscribee. You can change the template from
which this is generated.

No. There is no email "invite" function.

for information on editing templates. The invitation template is
invite.txt, and the subscription confirmation template is verify.txt.
