# I have 2 problems with digest v1.8:
# 1) The undigestify-rmail-message command in Emacs says that the digest
# produced is not a valid digest. A quick visual inspection reveals that
# it looks like other digests (like the Telecom Digest which works with
# the undigestify command).
Emacs has a limit on how far back from the end of the message it will
look for the "end" of the last digest in the message. Either fix the
Emacs code or use an empty TRAILER file.
# 2) I have the DIGEST_SIZE set to 28000, but a digest came out to about
# 19K. In addition, there are message subjects in the table of contents,
# but no corresponding messages in the digest. And, the messages are not
# in the incoming directory! What gives?
The DIGEST_SIZE trigger is calculated on the full size of the pending
messages, including all the headers that are stripped out when the
digest is actually assembled. Thus, a digest is going to be somewhat
smaller than the sum of the messages going into it.
I don't know about the second problem. The table of contents is
constructed when the digest is constructed, not progressively as
articles come in. Without some sample messages and a copy of your cf
file for that digest, I can't guess what might be happening.
