Each message should be adding to .mbox; is it?
Each time a message is added, digesting should be occurring (assuming
you haven't turned it off).
Are there clues in any of the logs?

> I have a message "Currently, there are no archives".
> I made the following section in my Web server configuration file:

> Options FollowSymLinks

> Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
