I'm making some progress -- but wondering about digest stuff:
Background: Unix BSD, virtual server, mj 1.94.1, sendmail, Newbie alert
When I issue the command to email@example.com
mkdigest list-digest PASSWORD
Subject: Majordomo results: Re: Majordomo results: mailing list requ

producing better-swim-digest V1 #1
such file or directory
Things I scratch my head about: I've got a pointer in some file that is
pointing to the wrong place to be sure. But, where to seek out that bad
Plus, there are some things in the config files that make me wonder too.
Have these been upgraded for the latest version? I'm now up to 1.94.1 --
but a step up to the latest might be in order?

The Don't change this unless ... -- I'm sure that the read me part was
written for people like me. I don't know what I'm doing so I leave that
blank. Can someone here push me into using that in the right way?
Plus, the digest file in the main majordomo folder has something that
seems to be a question too: Within the first 20 lines this is what I have:
--- snip start ---
$TEMP = "$TMPDIR/digest.$$" || "/usr/tmp/digest.$$";
--- snip end ---
My set-up on the server is like this:
The TMPDIR/ looks a bit too ugly for me to touch.
The digesting seems to be going on ok as posts go to the list. Files are
getting saved to a folder with pathway shown above. I have a list and a
list-digest set up too.
