There are three different messages. It looks like you have 443
"message" recipients, 141 recipients of one format (MIME or not) of
digests and 8 recipients of the other form of digest, and
digest_size_threshhold is small enough and this post (or this and its
predecessors) large enough that this post triggered a digest.
