As Jason recently pointed out that virtually none of the testers run digests,
you probably won't have considered what happens when multi-part messages
are digested together, rather blindly. Of course there could be any
number of different types of messages in a digest all having there own
sets of identifying headers. These clearly can't make it to the header
for the whole digest, so the digest mail tends to suffer most from such
additions, as sections, QP, etc come out like garbage even on clients
that are supposed to handle those types. If enough people complain I
usually just advise the senders to turn off such 'features' and never use
the Alt, Option or Meta keys when typing an email ;-)

Let's hope so!
