you can reply to individual messages normally. I don't know of a GUI mail
agent that does that, though.



The notion of digests made sense at one time when having 70 to 100 ExI posts
in one day was common.  There were times in about the mid 90s when I thought
it was great stuff but just didn't have time to read it all, and that was
when I wasn't even posting myself, just reading.  That's why we formed so
many specialized sub-groups: It was all I could do to keep up with that in
those busy years of my misspent youth.  Now the ExI volume is very low.  So
what good is the digest?
