You can't do this directly in mailman. There are some discussions of
these kinds of issues in the archives for the mailman-users list, but
I can't find any right now.
Even if you could do as you suggest, I don't think it would be a good
idea. Suppose your list started getting more than 24 posts per day.
You'd never work through the backlog.
Here's a thought. Set your list so only digest subscribers are allowed
(nondigestable = No on Non-digest options), make sure
digest_send_periodic is Yes and set all your current subscribers to
digest. Then set the crontab for the senddigests job to run it every
