Do you see any errors at all in the error log at the time a digest is

The owner, group and permissions on digest.mbox are as they should be.
When digests are produced, the MIME format digest is queued to be
sent, then the plain digest is queued, then a couple of calls return


is called to remove digest.mbox. Since the digests get sent, about the
only thing that can go wrong is the os.unlink() call itself unless
only MIME and not plain digests are being sent.

Without more clues, I'm stuck.
