   While I prefer this application, TheBat! (
<http://www.ritlabs.com> ) to Microsoft products, I should mention
that e.g. MS Outlook also handles MIME DIGEST message collections
also correctly, see the two images at

  MS Outlook Express does it too, in principle, but when I tested the
a Marxmail digest with Outlook Express 6.0, the program told me that
it had eliminated the embedded messages as a dangerous appendix. Some
time ago I had tested with an older version of Outlook Express and
could read and reply to the individual messages in a digest.

  So anyway, I want to encourage digest users to try out at least one
delivery with the MIME instead of TEXT option.
