Sounds like you're talking about 'encapsulating' it to me... ;) sorry

Hmmm... I actually really like this suggestion, especially if it might
be [much?] easier to implement. Worth exploring at least.
But, instead of clicking on the subject - which wouldn't be very
intuitive to me - I'd prefer just a single 'Open to Reply' link, which
would open the message as you described. Then, as you said, it would be
up to the MUA features to do the heavy lifting. This would be perfectly
acceptable to me, especially if it is an order of magnitude easier to
Too bad it isn't possible to keep the individual messages as attachments
and work with them that way...
Hmmm... another brain-dead suggestion... keep the messages fully intact
as attachments, but also convert/dump the plain-text content into the
Digest body for purposes of scrolling between messages and the message
summary at the top? Yes, it would increase the size of the digest - but
text is small, so maybe it wouldn't be all that bad?
Then the link would be either 'Open to Reply', or, if the original
message was other than text/plain, the link could change to 'Open to
Reply/View in Original Format'.

Ok, I'll try... sorry for wasting all of you guys' time...
