Update: I may have fixed the digest delivery issue by upping the
when-to-send threshold from 1 kb to 15kb.
Maybe this will work better. I am just guessing at that number; it might
need to be 20 or 30 or even more.
Send me feedback.

I have set digest mode to send out mail on a daily basis when a 15 kilobyte
total message size threshold has been met.
If it has not been met on any particular day it holds all mail until any
day following that the threshold has been met.
If I set it to weekly digest it functions the same way regarding threshold
and delivery.

The list functions exactly the way I configure it to with no errors, i.e.
no "problems at ibiblio".

What will it be, daily digest or weekly? Currently it is set to daily and
threshold is 15kb. The only way I can arrive at the
optimum setting is through user feedback, so let me know if it needs to be
set higher.
