If you're talking about digests from a Mailman list, if you select the
MIME format digest rather than the plain format, and you use an MUA that
can open the individual message/rfc822 parts as messages (I use mostly
mutt and Thunderbird and they both can do this), just open the message
you want and reply normally as I am doing here.
