If the banned user attempts to subscribe by email, he will receive an
email response.

If he attempts to subscribe via the web, there is no option to send him
an email notice.

This message is hard coded in the Mailman/Cgi/subscribe.py module. You
would have to edit that module to change it. If the list language is
not English, you could edit the translation of the message in the
message catalog for the language (messages/XX/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po)
and run msgfmt to rebuild mailman.mo.
