You can adjust the crontab entry to run senddigests on whatever
schedule you want (default is daily at noon).

Digests will still be sent when the accumulated size reaches

If you're asking regarding an individual list rather than the site, you
would have to set digest_send_periodic to No and then send digests
through some other process. You can't use cron/senddigests directly
because it only sends digests for lists that have digest_send_periodic
set to Yes even if the list is named on the command line, but you
could look at the code to see how a digest is sent and make a simple
script to do the same thing or use bin/withlist.
