FAQ
hi!

as soon as VERP_CONFIRMATION is set to yes in mailman configuration,
mailman sends out confirmation messages using the subject line "Your
confirmation is required to join the Mailman-Users mailing list"
(depending on the language setting of the list).

I tried to find this in FAQs, Mailinglist archives or on google - but
only found how to enable VERP. But nothing about how to change the
actual subject line text.

Does anybody know how to change the wording/text of the subject lines
in confirmation messages? I'd love to have something like "Please
subscribe to our newsletter..." ;-)

Thanks a lot,
ValiDOM

    If you only want to change the English message, find the message in the
    definition of the GetConfirmJoinSubject method in the file
    Mailman/MailList.py and edit it and restart Mailman. If you do this,
    it will break other l10n of this message. E.g., In German, the
    Subject: will be the edited English message, not the German
    translation.

    If you only want to change the translations of the message, e.g.
    German, edit the file messages/de/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po. Find

    msgid "Your confirmation is required to join the %(listname)s mailing
    list"
    msgstr "Ihre Best?tigung ist n?tig um die Liste %(listname)s zu
    abonnieren."

    in the file, edit the translation (msgstr) only, and rebuild the
    mailman.mo file with Mailman's bin/msgfmt.py or the system msgfmt. Do
    this for each changed translation.

    If you want to change both the English and translated messages, edit
    the English as above and then for each translation, add a new
    msgid/msgstr pair with the edited English string as msgid and the
    edited translation as msgstr to the end of the mailman.po file and
    rebuild the mailman.mo as above.
