It has nothing to do with welcome email. – noc2spam Sep 11 '13 at 16:46

add to your functions.php file:

add_filter('wpmu_signup_user_notification', 'my_if_notification_required');

function my_if_notification_required( $user ){
    $user = get_userdatabylogin( $user );
    if( $user && in_array('editor', $user->roles) ) return true;
    else return false;

add_filter( 'wpmu_signup_user_notification_email', 'my_notification_text');

function my_notification_text( $user, $user_email, $key, $meta ){
    $user = get_userdatabylogin( $user );
    if( !$user || !in_array('editor', $user->roles) ) return false;
    $message = 'Your message';
    return $message;
