I have become aware from the listowners list of two issues that affect
those of you who receive messages in Digest mode.
1) digests are now sent out only on a size basis. Formerly they were
sent out daily, or when a size limit is reached, today it is only the
latter. Rootsweb are looking at getting a daily option, but it seems
this is not likely to be any time soon. the effect of this is that
lists such as ours, with a small throughput may not issue digests for
some time. This seems to have happened to this list recently. As far as
I can see, a note posted on 20 April has not yet been issued as a
digest. (Maybe this note will trigger the issue). You can see the note
in the archives here:
If that link breaks across the page, try this instead:
If this is a concern then your options are to put up with it; switch to
individual messages; or check the archives manually.
2) Some lists have reported members receiving digests as a long string
of unformatted text. This can be changed by changing one of the system
settings.Unfortunately I believe that this has to be done by me. If it
is affecting anyone here then let me know.
