There's a really cool way of staying with the digest but having individual
messages in your mail reader.

Set up procmail, and put the following entry in your .procmailrc:

* ^FROM.samba
| formail +1 -ds >>mail/samba

Then set up pine (or whatever) to look for Samba messages in the file
~/mail/samba.  Easy!
