[Mailman-Users] Unintended multiple daily digest messages

Yes. There were six different successive digests that were sent (6:11 AM ...
Vol 2, Issue 28, 9:26 AM ... Vol 2, Issue 29, 11:43 AM ... Vol 2, Issue 30,
12:02 PM ... Vol 2, Issue 31, 12:04 PM ... Vol 2, Issue 32 and 3:12 PM ...
Vol 2, Issue 33).
The "digest_size_threshhold" was 30Kb and the "digest_send_periodic" was set
to "Yes".

I thought the default was to send one daily digest only and not multiple
dailiy digests (i.e dispatch a digest every time the threshold is met). If I
set "digest_size_threshold" to 200Kb and "digest_send_periodic" was set to
"No", does that mean that no daily digest will be dispatched at all  in a
slow day when there may be few messages?
