The O'Reilly book describes how to use the old digest script. The current
version doesn't use the .cf file or any of the other little files. It uses
the listname-digest.config file. Your aliases looked right the way you
posted them. If you've changed them now to use the .cf files, you may have
to redo some settings.
There is a file in the Doc directory called "quick-digest-setup" and it
outlines what you need to do to use the majordomo config file. There is
another file called "README.digest" that explains the two ways of setting
up digests (with the .cf file and with the majordomo .config file).
You need TWO directories to run a digest; the names are
where $digest_work_dir, $filedir, and $filedir_suffix are defined in
majordomo.cf. If your $digest_work_dir is ~majordom/digests, then
yes, you have the directory in the right place. Make sure you
have the archive directory in the right place, too.
You need both, because the digest script has to have a hold directory
for undigested mail, and an archive directory where it puts the finished
digest. They CANNOT be the same directory.
