You would need to modify the source code to do this.

Without modifying code, if you create a list or domain or even a site
modified template per the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/jYA9> and
name it verify.html or subscribeack.html, it will simply not be found
and the default template will be used.

If you create an edited list or domain or site template named
verify.txt or subscribeack.txt and containing HTML, it will still be
sent in a plain text email message so will appear as the raw HTML, not

You would need to modify the code that uses the template to create a
