i am NOT recommending Outlook to anyone unless you already are using it. 
i have tried it with digests and am not satisfied it handles MIME in a 
nice way. yes, you can click on individual messages and then respond, 
but TheBat! handles this much more transparently.

however, if you are stuck with Outlook, by all means enable MIME 
formatting and respond to individual messages.

i will offer assistance to any digest subscriber who wants to try a 
better email app.
