Many notifications are created from templates. See the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/jYA9> for instructions on creating list
specific, domain specific or sitewide edited templates. See the base
templates in Mailman's templates/en/ directory to find specific ones.

I'm not sure which you are referring to here. If you mean the list
welcome message, this template is subscribeack.txt. This is also one of
a few templates that can be edited for a specific list by following the
"Edit the public HTML pages and text files" -> "Welcome email text file"
links in the list's web admin UI.
If you mean the confirmation request sent to a user who's requested
subscription, that one is verify.txt
> * Password reminders
The header for monthly reminders is cronpass.txt. The on-demand reminder
> * Moderator message
Bounce notifications bounce.txt
n moderator requests checkdbs.txt
individual held post postauth.txt
subscription authorization subauth.txt
unsubscription authorization unsubauth.txt
There are other messages that are built totally from strings in the
code. Also, the Subject: headers for the ones built from templates are
also strings in the code.
For non-English languages, one can modify the translation in the
language's messages/<language-code>/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po file and
recompile the corresponding mailman.mo.
For English, one can create a messages/en/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po file
containing as "translations" the modified versions of the strings one
wants to change and compile that. You need some familiarity with
i18n/l10n and tools like msgfmt in order to do this.
