Hi Christian,

I believe the template that governs that message is the postheld.txt. It 
seems to be a generic template that is used for any post that is held 
for any reason. You can access this template via your list admin 
interface and it is called "User notice of held post". To access it 
click on the "Edit the public HTML pages and text files" link in your 
list admin interface.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for your business. We appreciate our clients.
