Good catch, my samples do not have archive or digest active, just available.
As listed, it is the "no frills" version. I did send an earlier message that
may have had them enabled or used some extra utilities... I need to pay more
attention to what I am doing at 2 in the morning. :)
To make archive active, the listname-archiver alias has to be added where the
,nobody is located on the RHS (right hand side) of the -outgoing alias.
If you want to enable digesting, you need to add "BOTH" the archiver and the
digestify aliases to the RHS or your -outgoing alias.
