[Mailman-Users] Digest Sending Questions

I am currently running a "test" list on Mailman (2.1.5) on OSX Tiger 
(10.4.2) and seem to have some problems with the sending of Digests.

I have the list set that it will bunch traffic in Digests.  And I 
have the option "Should a digest be dispatched daily when the size 
threshold isn't reached?" set to YES.  But it is not sending out a 
Daily Digest although there are posts in the queue.  It only seems to 
be sending out a digest when the Threshold is reached.  What can I do 
to make Mailman send out the Digest Daily even if there are only a 
couple of posts for that Digest?  I have even tried to "toggle" the 
Daily Sending option to NO and then back to YES but that doesn't seem 
to work to force a Daily Digest.

Also, I don't see anything where I can set the time that a Daily 
Digest is sent out.  On my current LetterRipPro list server I have 
the Digests for the lists that have a digest option to send for each 
list at a different time, actually about a half an hour apart just to 
lessen the amount of out-going traffic when the Digests get sent.  Is 
it possible to do that same with Mailman?

Thank you for your help
