Realize most of the talk has been revolving around 1.94 and Mdomo
2.0, but for those of you who are still operating 1.93 here is a
patch  that I think will add a nice enhancement to majordomo

What this change does is properly implement the multipart/digest MIME 
extension which is part of RFC 1341.  What this enhancement will do 
for you is this:

So long as your mail client properly supports RFC 1341 (I know
pegagsus does) then when you receive a digest message  and read the
message you will be presented with a dialog box that lists the
individual messages that are contained in the digest message.  These 
messages can then be read individually and replied to quite easily, 
and with the correct subject heading.

If your mail client doesn't properly support RFC1341 then it will 
handle the message just as it has in the past, you'll just get one 
long message.

To apply this patch save the text between ----Begin and ----End to 
some file name like digest.patch.  Then run the following command:

patch digest < digest.patch

----Begin of  digest.patch
< From: $from
> To:   $V{'REPLY-TO'}
> From: $V{'REPLY-TO'}
> Reply-To: $from
< $EB
> --$EB
> Mime-Version: 1.0
> Content-Type: multipart/digest; boundary="$EB"
>     print DIGEST "--$EB\n\n";
>     print DIGEST "--$EB--\n";
----END digest.patch
