I don't think it's the best solution. IMO, it would be better to allow the user to choose
the template he want to use if he don't want the default.

If we allow to have a template per group or project, in fact per mail notifier, it's easy
to add this feature if the one above is implemented. We can store it in the mail notifier
configuration field 
so we don't need to change the db schema for it.
