customise the confluence add user email message

hi, has anyone any oidea how to customise the message sent to a new user after I add them via "add user"?

[I thought the text came from the same place as "invite user" and that changing that would have the desired effect - no joy so far]

As always any pointers much appreciated

Now a quick edit and repack

shame this isnt customisable more easily

thanks again
