In a way similar to the customized greeting for new subscribers (which is sent only after a subscription), it would be great to be able to add text to the initial invitation message, to explain what the list is about, the basis for the invitation ("met you at the conference"), etc.

    This feature already exists.

    On the Membership Management...Mass Subscription page, put your additional text in the second text box, the one below the box for addresses where it says "Below, enter additional text to be added to the top of your invitation or the subscription notification. Include at least one blank line at the end..."

    Or do you mean that you want to be able to customize the invitation email 'permanently' as you can the 'Welcome' message? While you can't do this via the web admin interface as you can with the welcome, you can make a list specific version of the invite.txt template as discussed at http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq04.048.htp

    If this is a request to add the ability to edit the invite.txt template via the web admin interface, please clarify that that is the case.
