Customising user confirmation emails in phpBB?

Is there a phpBB mod that allows the admin to customise the content of the email users get upon signing up?

You don't need a mod for that -- just edit the relevant translation strings in language/lang_english/lang_main.php. Search for "Welcome_subject" in that file -- the strings you'll want to change start there. The email bodies themselves are in the set of strings just below there, from "Account_added" to "COPPA", all depending on what your board requires for new accounts.

Follow-up: the strings I needed were actually .tpl files not in the PHP. (Them's template files.) They live in \forum\language\lang_english\email.
