Digest article is a message containing many messages in digest format. Since a digest article contains many messages in one article, it is a little bit difficult to read it on a per message basis. The following commands make it easier to read each message in a digest.
The commands C-c C-n and C-c C-p
scroll a digest article to the next and previous digested message,
respectively. The variable
gnus-digest-separator specifies a
regexp which separates digested messages.
The command C-d (
gnus-Subject-rmail-digest) runs Rmail on
a digest article and makes it possible to read messages not in digest
form using Rmail Mode. See Info file `emacs', node `Rmail', for more
information on Rmail Mode. Use the hook
to run Rmail on digest articles automatically.
