I don't force anyone, but I have ensured that the information about my
lists that's available on AOL recommends digest to subscribers. Since
it's a UK focussed list, I also state in the FAQ that "If you are
outside Europe, in a time zone where you won't read message around the
time they they're sent, we would prefer you to take the digest option.
You should also take the digest if you don't log in to read your mail
This seems to have worked, and I don't tend to get very many bounces
due to full mailboxes anymore. If people ask for messages and
persistently cause bounces, I move them to digest myself; though with
up to 6 digests a day, even that can cause problems after a while.
