Enterprise Vault Mailbox Archiving Message

I need to edit the message that EV sends to users after they are enabled for mailbox archiving. Or I need to prevent it from sending the message all together.

Editing the Welcome message
When Enterprise Vault enables a mailbox for archiving, it automatically sends a
Welcome message to that mailbox. The Welcome message provides basic
information for users on how to get help and what to expect. You must edit this
message before it is sent to reflect how you have set up Enterprise Vault.
During the installation, the Welcome message is placed in a folder beneath the
Enterprise Vault program folder:
Setting up archiving from mailboxes 175
Editing automatic messages
Enterprise Vault\Languages\Mailbox Messages\lang
where lang indicates the language used.
The Welcome message is in a file called EnableMailboxMessage.msg.
To set up the Welcome message
1 Decide which language version of EnableMailboxMessage.msg you want to
use and locate the file.
2 Using a computer that has Microsoft Outlook installed, double-click the file
EnableMailboxMessage.msg in Windows Explorer to edit the message.
3 Review the text and make any changes that you require. If necessary, include
instructions to users about how to install the Enterprise Vault Add-Ins on
their computers.
4 Save the message.
5 Copy EnableMailboxMessage.msg to the Enterprise Vault program folder
(normally C:\Program Files\Enterprise Vault) on every Enterprise Vault
server in the site.

By default EV does not

By default EV does not 'welcome' messages when mailbox enabled/disable for archiving & warning message come in event stating that message could not be found. if an administrator need to enable this functionality then msg can be copied from '\enterprise Vault\Languages\Mailbox Messages\lang' to '\enterprise vault'.

You can edit these messages as per your need.
