A couple hodge-podge ideas... You could create a robot ("autoresponder") with an address like "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" and program-in your stock welcome message. Then write a wrapper script for your vadduser that creates the user then sends a blank email to the robot address, resulting in the welcome message being returned.
Or, write a wrapper script that creates the user and then simply does a mail -S subject [EMAIL PROTECTED] < welcome.msg (or whatever the syntax should be). That's assuming, of course, that there aren't any built-in mechanisms for this. :) > How would you set a welcome message for every new user?
