Spam notice

Problem with digests, as experienced in the past with web hosting and
setting up Email mailing lists, is that HTML Emails cause a lot of
headaches. The digest mode would have to strip HTML or save it as
text/plain - otherwise badly-written HTML could make an archive really hard
to read, if readable at all, embedded styles, etc., could make even the
prettiest HTML documents look horrendous.

Just my $0.02 worth, but yes, I support this idea. I have one user (who gets
50% of all spam collected on my system of dozens of domains hosted) who is
particularly paranoid about FP's and losing legit Email.
