i only know one email application that fully supports the MIME digest
option, it is a LISP-based app for the emacs family of editors:
unfortunately this is not a solution which is easily usable by the
average internet user. but it does point to a failure in design of most
email apps in relation to the MIME standard. MIME format has been around
for arranges and next to no one does anything right with respect to it.
even Thunderbird, the open source "alternative", behaves badly with
respect to digest display.
i seem to remember trying Pegasus Mail and thinking it did ok with
digests. but its user base is so small on this list.
