[MBS] Shorter interval for Digest Mode?

I subscribe to digest mode of this list, but I find that the digests
come out so infrequently that I can't keep up with conversations.

For example, the last digest I received was on Tuesday.

Christian, is there any way you could set the maximum time between
digests to something smaller (say, 24 hours?). That way, even if
traffic is low, we can still participate without too much delay.

thx!

The minimum size of a digest emails was set to 30 KB. I set it to 0, so
you may get everyday an email.

Actually, it looks like now we get a digest sent for every email,
which defeats the purpose of digest mode :-)

Most mailing list software has, in addition to a minimum digest size,
a maximum delay setting such as "Send a digest every 24 hours even if
the size hasn't been reached"... I'd suggest setting the digest size
back to 30k but change the max time setting instead?

thx

The option "Should a digest be dispatched daily when the size threshold
isn't reached?" is set to yes.

My english is not perfect, but whould you suggest yes or no for this
option?

Please, please reset the message size for the digest!

Ian.

I think "Yes" is the answer. Perhaps it wasnt' working (or perhaps
the traffic was just low so I wasn't seeing any messages). Thanks!
