You _can_ force the digest to go out, if that helps your situation any.
Otherwise you're better off using the '911' list.

Not that I know of. You can try adding her as a member and turn on her
'nomail' and 'ack' flags. That would prevent her from receiving list
messages but she would still be ACK'd, I think. Worth a try anyway.
