Sorry. Digest mode is not usable, because it does not handle MIME
(instead if strips MIME headers and does not do decoding). So
result is not readable. I may considere again digest mode if
server keeps mime -headers and put digest to multipart/digest.

(Well. Individual messages is also easier to browse than that digest.)
