At TECHWR-L you are "lucky" that you could do that. I defenitely *deny* the
digest function to the users of my mailing lists (send a message to
info -at- twh -dot- msn -dot- sub -dot- org for more info about them). My motives are simple: You
cannot take part in any discussions if you get the digest. Don't expect me to
read *any* message with a "digest of..." subject.

Simply solve the problem and do not look for a work-around: Get an e-mail
editor with filter functions like Eudora (http://www.qualcomm.com, freeware
for several platforms). Then all messages from every mailing list you receive
are sorted into separate folders for every mailing list.

I get some 300 messages a day in some 10 mailing lists and have no problems to
cope with them: I read perhaps 20 messages, answer 5 and let all expire after
a few days.
