A digest is a message that contains other messages. Special mh-e
commands let you read digests conveniently. You can use SPC and
BS to page through the digest as if it were a normal message, but
if you wish to skip to the next message in the digest, use M-SPC
mh-page-digest). To return to a previous message, use
Another handy command is M-b (
command uses the MH command
burst to break out each message in
the digest into its own message. Using this command, you can quickly
delete unwanted messages, like this: Once the digest is split up, toggle
out of MH-Folder Show mode with t (see section 2.1.2 Moving Around) so that
the scan lines fill the screen and messages aren't displayed. Then use
d (see section 2.4.2 Deleting Your Mail) to quickly delete messages that you don't
want to read (based on the `Subject:' header field). You can also
burst the digest to reply directly to the people who posted the messages
in the digest. One problem you may encounter is that the `From:'
header fields are preceded with a `>' so that your reply can't
create the `To:' field correctly. In this case, you must correct
the `To:' field yourself. This is described later in 2.3.1 Editing Textual Messages.
