Yes, that's it. My problem solving may be a little different because I have
a shared server with vhosting and is custom configured in such a way that
the majordomo digest will not work. So, I did a workaround which involves
sending the digest by a daily cron script. The part of the script that got
around the "dot" problem was this:
mail -s "MY-DIGEST" email@example.com < mydigest
Of course, the "mydigest" is a file with all of the day's messages
containing the pesty "dot".
I got lucky! Hope this helps....
