In a MIME formatted Mailman digest, each post is a separate MIME part.
Many MUAs will show these as attachments which can be opened and
printed individually. Some MUAs will even allow these to be forwarded
or replied to as individual messages as well.

For example, ELM, Pine 4.44, Netscape 7.1/Mozilla 5.0 and MS
Outlook Express 6 will open and print individual messages from the
MIME digest, but of these, only Outlook Express and Pine will allow an
individually opened part to be forwarded or replied to.
