Several Mailing list settings specify texts to be sent to the subscribers - message subjects, message headers and trailers, confirmation requests, etc. A specified text can contain special symbol combinations to be substituted with actual data before the text is inserted into a message.
The following symbol combinations can be used:
|^N||the listname string|
|All Texts||^D||the domain string|
|^E||The Description setting|
|Digest Subject, Header, Trailer||^X||the sequence number of the current digest|
|Feed Subject Prefix||^B||The sequence number of the current message|
|Header, Trailer||^C||the original message 'From' address|
If there is a number after a special symbol combination (as in ^N80), the number specifies the maximum length of the substitution string. If a substitution is longer than specified, its last symbols are cut off.
If there is a number after a special string combination, and the number starts with 0, as in ^N040, the number specifies the length of the substitution string. If a substitution string is longer than specified, its last symbols are cut off, and if a string is shorter than specified, space symbols are added to the beginning of the string. If the number starts with two 0 symbols, the 0 symbols are used instead of spaces.
