Hello

(optional) Reference to a document that will be sent via email to new members of this mailing list at the time that they join. Leave Blank if no document should be sent.

Here is a sample hello document, that uses mail merge codes to put the correct information in. You might want to create a server-level hello document with this text in it, so that all lists can use this same hello document, and Lyris will automatically substitute the correct information in.

    Subject: Welcome to $subst('list.name')
