Ah, you did; I guess I didn't get it the first time because my resend line
has no "-r" in it. At any rate, what must be doing the trick in my case is
the "$opt_h = $opt_h || $whereami;" thingie in resend (and digests do NOT go
through resend, right?).
So, 'resend' benefits from both an "-r" command line switch as well as from
the fall back in the code to find the host from the majordomo config file,
whereas it seem as if the digest code relies solely on the list's config
file. Food for thought.
Thank you again for your help.
