If you set
VERP_CONFIRMATIONS = Yes
in mm_cfg.py, the subject will be "You have been invited to join the
<listname> mailing list", and the confirm token will be embedded in
the From: address as in
listname-confirm+23a6e1fdf979dd223e7466e95deb10f486ba3b79 at example.com
This requires that your incoming MTA recognizes that the "+token"
suffix in the local part is in fact a suffix and deliver a reply as if
addressed to listname-confirm at example.com.
You have some control over the form of this with the mm_cfg.py settings
for VERP_CONFIRM_FORMAT and VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP, but many MTA's will
do the right thing without your having to adjust anything.
