I am sorry but my last recommendation is only partly correct, since it
was meant to be used in case you have got a normal list with an associated
For a mere digest-list I don't know a solution yet either, but I would
recommend you to open a normal list WITH a separate digest list. How
to do this has been described quite well in the book 'Managing Internet

You can then have your users send usual mails to that normal list whose
'maxlength' value file you limited to the size appropriate to your needs
