I'm working on it.  But so far it seems that particular setting is
a) Hardcoded into the server (which I doubt) or
b) Done at the site level, which we don't have access to

So far I have yet to discover where settings for that item are, or
even what the *name* of the setting is.  This is the first I've delved
into the site documentation, so I'm still feeling my way through those.

And I must say that I agree on the default messages - they aren't
exactly the clearest are they? ::grin:: But then they are written so as
to be quite generic.

I'll keep digging - hopefully I'll uncover the solution to this one
before too long.
