I have looked at the code and contrary to the implication of the
documentation, the <password> and (no)digest options are positional.
Since you are creating the mail from a web page, you can use the
address= option to put the (no)digest option in the right place. E.g.
subscribe address=user at example.com digest
will work, but it will not allow specification of the real name.
At the very least, the command in the documentation should be revised to
subscribe [password [digest|nodigest]] [address=<address>]
The real solution is to change the code to make digest non positional
subscribe [password] [digest=yes|no] [address=<address>]
