I actually get it both ways. Individual messages to read, digests for
more compact archival/search purpose (I store them on Info-Newt's FTP
site,too...which reminds me; I need to add the last month or two's
digests to the site....after renumbering them because every time Planet
Newton has a problem with this list the digest seems to reset to V1's about the 3rd or 4th time now. Argh!)

But to each his own. Choice is good.

Claris Emailer 2.0v3 on the MacOS. Although I think many email apps can
do the above. Dunno if any Newton ones can cause I get too much mail
(even without NewtonTalk) for me to want to read it all on my Newton. I
could, but I like to archive a lot of messages, and that's not a Newton's
(or any PDA's) strong suit....until someone comes out with cheap 14GB
memory cards! ;-)
