"But you can't save individual postings which is a big drawback (unless
you do a copy/paste operation which seems to defeat the purpose)."

Hang on, how about the archives? http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/
Although, admittedly, searching them is not as convenient as it could be...

I used to subscribe to the digest, but since I found I wanted to reply
to some comments, I switched to the 'usual' method - I do send to a
separate folder.
The largest benefit of digest is that you only have one delete to press.
But you can't save individual postings which is a big drawback (unless
you do a copy/paste operation which seems to defeat the purpose).
I've found that having some rules for deleting - e.g. things on topics
of no interest to me get deleted immediately.

Yes this is what I do.
I suspect many people subscribe to the digest to avoid getting many
statalist emails in their inbox.  But, since these all come from the
statalist server, it's comparatively simple to set up a filter that
transfers them to separate mail folder created specifically for Stata
emails.

In essence, this folder becomes the equivalent of the digest, but much
easier to work with since all the emails are still separate.

if I understand correctly, have the entire days submissions as part of
the "RE:" transmission.  I think I may have done this once and felt
red-faced.

Many (most?) email programs let you set up filters.  I have all
statalist messages go to a separate folder, where I can read or not
read them at my leisure.  Without filters, statalist messages would
make it much more difficult to find all the other stuff I should be
paying attention to.
