Naomi,
You can reply to messages in a Digest provided you have set
your list options so that you choose "MIME" rather than
"Plain Text" for the option "Get MIME or Plain Text Digests?"
provded your email client supports MIME Digests.
In that case, when you open the Digest email, you will be
able to read each individual message separately, since each
one is attached as a separate attachment.
With Plain Text Digests, however, the messages are all strung
together as one long single email message, and cannot be
individually separated.
Hopoing this helps,
Ted.
