Hi Margie --

If you are getting the "digest" the problem is "Reply" will usually quote
the *entire* digest. You have two choices:

1. Hit reply... Delete all the quoted digest down to the msg to which you
want to reply... Delete everything after that msg... Copy the whole
"Subject" line exactly and paste it into the subject line of your
reply... Delete more of the quoted msg so you leave just enough... Then
compose your reply.

2. Reading the digest, copy the msg to which you want to reply... Close
the digest... Open a new msg... Paste... Then proceed as above.

It's much easier to reply when you are getting the regular msg
