This explains how to set/unset digest mode, among other things 
(like how to unsubscribe).

At one time I asked people not to use individual messages because 
the samba mail server was overloaded and couldn't handle the huge
number of mail messages that non-digest mode causes (it would be
about 150,000 messages a day if everyone did it). 

Thanks to a very generous donation from SGI we now have a much more 
powerful server so this is less of a problem.
